In a gesture of solidarity, our sister city, Strasbourg, raised over 600 euro for The One Fund Boston (onefundboston.org). Over 10,000 runners participated in the annual “Courses de Strasbourg Europe" on Sunday, May 12, 2013, and the event was dedicated to the City of Boston and the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.
Many of the runners wore “Honor Boston” tee-shirts or stickers. The City of Boston was represented in the semi-marathon by Somerville resident and runner Elisabeth Duclos-Orsello, who thanked the crowd of over 2,400 for their support prior to the race.
