ELMHURST – An Elmhurst running club will host a "Fun Run" on Saturday for the Richard family, victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

The explosions killed 8-year-old Martin Richard and seriously injured his mother and sister while they cheered on runners near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15.

Runners will take off at 7:30 a.m. on the Prairie Path at the northeast corner of Spring Road and Prairie Path Lane. Runners of all levels and walkers are invited to run two miles, 6.2 miles or any distance.

Donations can be made to the Richard family at richardfamilyfund.org. Participants can RSVP with the number of people in their group by sending an email to molly_akers@akers.comcast.net or skirkham22657@comcast.net.
