TULSA - Hundreds of Green Country runners laced up their shoes and hit the road in support of the Boston Marathon bombing victims Monday night.
Fleet Feet organized the event. Many runners purchased T-shirts that read "We are Unstoppable." All the proceeds of the shirts, sold for $25, will go to The One Fund, Inc., a benefit set up for last week's victims.
Before the benefit run, all of the shirts had been sold.
"For that to happen at the Boston Marathon was just so shocking and surprising," said Fleet Feet owner Tim Dreiling. "Then, you're just really upset that somebody's jacking with our race."
Dreiling began organizing Monday's run last Thursday. He was very surprised by the outpouring of support, but he believes it spoke volumes about the running community. "It is very tight-knit," he said.
Dreiling says he hopes Fleet Feet will have a new stock of the "We are Unstoppable" shirts by the end of the week.
