This ignited interest nationwide and today there are over 80 cities participating, over 2,500 runners around the globe running between 3-4 miles in support and remembrance on Monday, April 22, 2013 at 6:00PM.

The official purpose for this global event is to have:

-A run for us to unite and show our strength.
-A run for those that were unable to finish.
-A run for those that may never run again.
-A run for us to try and make sense of the tragedy that has forever changed something we love.

“I feel like I need to do something. Something more than a donation. Something more than a blog post or a photo or a graphic,” said Brian Kelley, Pavement Runner. “I’m inspired by the community and how we have come together and shown our support, shed our tears and expressed our fears. With a simple look at your Facebook page, a refresh of your twitter feed or scroll through Instagram and you can see the love. With #BostonStrong we feel the love.”
