MORRIS PLAINS - Local runners came together at a 5K race in Morris Plains to pay tribute to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing today.

Over 100 participants in the race paid a $20 entry fee or made a donation. Organizers say they raised more than $2,500 for One Fund Boston, a donation fund designed to help the people most affected by the Boston blasts.

Runners at the race say there were able to breathe a sigh of relief last night after the second suspect was captured by Boston authorities.

"It was a tragedy what happened less than a week ago in Boston," said runner Chris Russo. "It was nice to come out and support a good cause."
