Illini Radio Group and Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon Team Up for Boston
Champaign – Runners in the Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon will be wearing a show of support for the people of Boston.
The Illini Radio Group ordered thousands of stickers. They will be available at the marathon start line, and at the State Farm 27th Mile Celebrate Victory Bash on the south side of Memorial Stadium.
The sticker is a printed ribbon in the shape of a shoelace and the word "Boston." Runners are encouraged to place the stickers on their race bib or clothing. Spectators are also encouraged to wear the stickers.
Each sticker will cost $1, with proceeds going to The One Fund Boston, which has been established to help people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15.
Evangelist Franklin Graham prayed on a sidewalk outside the Pentagon Thursday after his invitation to a prayer service inside was withdrawn because of comments that insulted people of other religions. More>>
