8-year-old Martin Richard was at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013 with his father, mother and sister, cheering the runners as they made their way towards the finish line when the explosions went off, taking his life and gravely injuring his mother and sister. Not only are they faced with grieving the senseless loss of Martin, both mother and daughter will have extensive medical expenses and rehabilitation to endure simultaneously. We need to help them and let them know we are their crowd support, cheering them on to keep going exactly the same way The Richard Family was doing on Monday, April 15th at The Boston Marathon. As a symbol of our support, we created “Tougher Than 6.2” as a local call-to-action, inviting individuals of all running abilities to log some miles and to raise funds for The Richard Family.
