ODRA ANDERSON  |  stage 298 |  PA
I'm running because I want to give back to the sport and the running community that has given me so much. To rebuild and restore the spirit of the Boston Marathon and provide long term assistance to the victims of the tragedy. A tragedy that did not weaken us, but strengthened us, as we, runners, family and friends, show our solidarity even more than ever. WE ARE BOSTON STRONG!

Some information you might not know about:

*There were 5 fatalities
*****Martin Richard (8); Kystle Campbell (29); Lingzi Lu (23); Sean Collier (26); Tamerlan Tsarneaev*****
*About 260 injured
*Of those 260, 16 are amputees
*An amputee can spend upto $40k on a basic artificial leg, which needs to be replaced every 3-5 years
*The cost to amputate can go up to $60k
*Most insurances will only pay 80-90%
*Imagine the cost of hospital care in the days after the bombings and other related costs

IT ALL ADDS UP - Your dollars will help the survivors.
If you can help, why not?

Thank you for being so awesome!
