WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - About 50 people are expected for the Run for Boston on Monday night organized by the Westchester Road Runner to show solidarity for those affected by the bombing at the Boston Marathon.
Christy Leggiero, a salesperson for the store, said the 2.62-mile run begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Westchester Road Runner on 179 E. Post Road. Runners will go south on Waller Avenue toward Mamaroneck Avenue, and then zig-zag around the side streets and loop back to the store.
"We invited everyone and anyone, no matter what their pace is, to join us as a form of unity and solidarity for the victims and everyone affected," Leggiero said.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings a week ago, was charged Monday with using a weapon of mass destruction. He will be tried in civilian court on the federal charge and could face the death penalty.
The older brother was killed in a shootout last Friday.
To join the run, meet up at the Westchester Road Runner at 6:30 p.m. Monday.
