ELIZABETH - A group of runners from Tennessee passed through New Jersey on their way to compete in the Boston Marathon.

They're running from Chattanooga to Boston to raise money to buy prosthetic limbs for children who were injured in last year's bombing.

Three people were killed and more than 260 were injured in the attack. Sixteen victims lost limbs, including three children.

The group, known as the  Run Now Relay Runners, began last week. Each member runs six miles at a time.  So far, they have raised more than $60,000.
