BROOKFIELD - A local running store joined more than 50 others around the country Monday night to raise funds for Boston Marathon bombing victims. Performance Running Outfitters put together a fun run and walk to raise the cash. They were expecting only a couple of dozen people to take part, but more than 500 local runners turned out. Among them, about 25 local people who raced in this year's Boston Marathon. The store sold t-shirts for 20 dollars a piece with all proceeds going to the OneFundBoston foundation benefiting the victims and first responders of the tragedy. Organizers collected more than 10-thousand dollars for the cause.
