The 117th running of the Boston Marathon was unfortunately marred by blasts that took the lives of three people and injured more than 180. One of the lives taken on Monday was that of 8-year old Martin Richard, a spectator whose mother and sister were also injured in the attack.
Doing their part to help in this great time of need, Packer Shoes is launching the 2013 New Balance Boston Marathon tomorrow evening, with all proceeds from all sales through Monday, April 22 going to the Boys & Girls Club in Martin's hometown of Dorchester, Massachusetts. The "Global City Pack" collection consists of special make-ups of the 890v3 and 990v3 made to commemorate the release.
