Some local runners are trying to heal and make a difference this weekend.
The Southern Oregon Running Enthusiasts -- a meetup group also known as "S.O.R.E." -- is organizing a trail run around Lost Creek Lake on Sunday in memory of victims of the Boston tragedy.
The group will be meeting at 9:30 in the morning in Medford's Hawthorne park for people who want to carpool.
Others who do not want to carpool can meet at Lost Creek Lake at 10:30 am.
Any ability level can join.
Donations are encouraged but aren't mandatory. The idea? give at least one-dollar for every mile walked, ran, or hiked.
The money will go toward 8-year-old Martin Richard's school. He was one of the people killed in the Boston bombing.
