Hundreds of Quad Citians hit the pavement this morning to
pay tribute to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.
Anyone participating in the Run for Renewal 5k in Davenport
had their entry fee waived by Live Uncommon and their sponsors.
Organizers for the non-profit said they paid for the entries
as a way of remembering the victims of the tragedy, and to show that runners
around the world can't be stopped so easily.
"Somebody asked me earlier this week if we thought
runners would stop turning out for races because of the tragedy. And we thought about that and we think the
answer is unquestionably no, that people do want to come out and they want to
stand up in protest," said Michelle Solis Russell of Live Uncommon. Live Uncommon also waived entry fees at a
second race today, the Race for Autism in Bettendorf.
