As a nation we continue to remember the tragic events of the 2013 Boston Marathon and support all of those affected.

Today, Grand Rapids will join a nationwide movement by hosting a Run for Boston 4/17.

The nationwide movement has been organized on Facebook and has 14,891 "likes" as of 9:15am.

The Grand Rapids Run For Boston 4/17 will begin at 6:00pm tonight at Striders.  Striders is at 1551 Wealthy SE in Grand Rapids.

Runners are asked to wear Boston Marathon colors:  blue and yellow.  Runners may choose between a 3 mile run or a 6 mile run.

Over 100 people have said they will be at tonight's event in Grand Rapids via Facebook.  That number will continue to grow. A similar event drew hundreds in Portage on Tuesday night.
