Nearly $61 million raised by the One Fund Boston will be distributed to 232 individuals and families starting Sunday, marking the end of a crash two-month campaign to raise money quickly to help victims of the Marathon bombings.
The total — which far exceeded the expectations of the fund’s administrators — will allow them to write larger checks on average than the aid provided to the victims of the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
Those whose relatives’ died and those who suffered the most grievous injuries as a result of the terror in Boston will each receive nearly $2.2 million.
The administrators of the fund, which was established shortly after the bombings by Mayor Thomas M. Menino and Governor Deval Patrick, rejected 26 claims that were submitted earlier this month.
One claim is still being reviewed, and any compensation for that person would come from money raised over the coming months. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
