    One of the ways people are honoring Boston in the wake of the marathon bombings in through tribute runs.

    Fleet Feet Sports in West Hartford will hold a Boston Marathon tribute 3-mile run on Monday, April 22 at 6 p.m. 

    Runners are asked to bring a donation for the One Fund Boston, which Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino set up to help the people affected by the bombings on Monday.

    The first 100 people who donate $20 or more, will receive a "Runners for Boston" t-shirt, according to the Fleet Feet Facebook post. All proceeds will be donated to the One Fund.

    The run/walk will start at Fleet Feet Sports at 6 p.m. and end in the same spot.

    Runners who can't make it on Monday, but still want to donate and receive a shirt, can bring your donation to the store and they'll reserve a shirt for you.

    If you call a pledge of $25 or more into 860-233-8077, the store will mail you a shirt once they receive your check or cash donation.
