450 mile run from DC to Boston to raise money for bombing victims

Posted: Updated:

An Arlington man and his friend are embarking on a 450 mile run this to raise money for the Boston Marathon bombing victims.

Frank Fumich and Matt Nelson will run from Arlington to Boston - nonstop!

Both men are experienced ultra runners and have set a goal to raise $78,000 for the family of Martin Richard, an 8-year-old killed in the attack.

The run will also support Jeffrey Bauman, who lost both legs.

The pair left from the pentagon at 6:00 a.m. and plan on arriving in Boston on Saturday afternoon.

FOX 5's Melanie Alnwick reports.
