The Boston Athletic Associate announced today that it will contribute $250,000 to The One Fund Boston for Marathon bombing victims' relief.

“We express our deepest gratitude to the B.A.A.’s 1300 medical personnel, 7200 volunteers, and organizing committee, along with the City of Boston’s first responders, who reacted quickly and courageously to save lives,” said Joann Flaminio, B.A.A. President. “Their tireless efforts and their dedication remains with us as we begin to move forward. Our thoughts continue to be with the victims, all of those injured, and their families.”

B.A.A. Executive Director Thomas Grilk said that the organization has seen support and love from the people of the city and continues to think of all those affected by the tragedy.

“As we continue to address matters relating to the 2013 Boston Marathon, we also will begin to turn our attention to the 2014 race," said Grilk.
