Sacramento Running Association Donates To Boston Victims

Ellen Moore heads the non-profit Sacramento Running Association which organizes the California International Marathon…or CIM…held in December.

Moore announced today that the association is donating $10,000 to "The One Fund Boston" set up to help people affected by the April 15th explosions.  

"People still have the victims in mind and are still doing what we can to show our support both in solidarity and also financially."

Moore says the association likes to think of CIM as the Boston Marathon of the West.
Both races are point-to-point courses and each year about 1,600 CIM runners earn a qualifying time to enter the Boston Marathon.
"Even if you've never even run a marathon, you're just a casual 5K, 10K type of runner, you take it personally and you see it as an attack on the lifestyle."
Moore says this year's CIM in December will include some sort of memorial for the Boston bombing victims.
