Twin Tiers (WENY) - Across the nation runners came out in support of the Boston marathon victims and for the city as a whole. In New York City thousands wore "I Run For Boston" Bibs during a 4 mile run in central park Sunday. More than 6,000 runners took part in Sunday's City Parks Foundation Run for the Parks. T-shirts were sold at the event with proceeds going to the One Fund Boston, the official fund for those affected by the bombing. More than 500 runners gathered in St. Louis on Saturday for a Unity Run. In Louisiana, San Francisco, Michigan, Burlington, Vt, even across the seas, in Greece, runners came out to show support. Sunday's London Marathon started with tributes to the Boston victims and a moment of silence.
