A cross-country relay made its way through Indianapolis Saturday to support survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing.

"One Run for Boson" started March 16 in Santa Monica, Calif. It will end in Boston on April 13 two days before the first anniversary of the tragedy.

Thousands of people are involved in the effort, running stages of the 3,300 mile route. Saturday morning, the group passed through the Indianapolis Zoo and Monument Circle before heading to Richmond.

The relay has special meaning for Beth Goldrosen. She was at the marathon last year when chaos unfolded.

"It's amazing to me how many people are stepping up for the victims of the Marathon bombing everywhere across the United States," Goldrosen said. "We're all going to be running together in Boston this year on the 21st. And we are going to finish the race this year."

Their goal is to raise $1 million for the One Fund Boston, which benefits those impacted by last year's blast. You can find out more on how to help on the event's website.
