Moorestown Runners Show Support for Boston Victims

Roughly 100 people ran a 'silent mile' at Moorestown High School Tuesday for those affected by the tragedy in Boston. Did you run, or watch? Share your photos with us.

Roughly 100 people came out to the Moorestown High School track Tuesday night to run a "silent mile" for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. 

The runners—a mix of students, including members of the lacrosse team, and adults—took four laps around the track, candles in hand, to honor those affected by the tragedy. 

The tribute came together quickly, after the Running Company of Moorestown, Haddonfield and Mullica Hill put out a call for runners on Facebook Tuesday morning. It was one of a number of efforts across the country to organize runners in support of the victims in Boston. 

Moorestown Board of Education President Don Mishler, who stopped by the track after the board meeting, said he heard about the run early in the day Tuesday and made sure arrangements were made to light the track.

Thanks to everyone involved in organizing this. I thought the turnout was great, especially with having been organized in such a short amount of time. Very inspiring.

Thank you Rick but all I did was forward an email that I had received from Bob Bickel, Colleen Tindall and the Moorestown Running Co. Thank you Bob, Colleen and the Running Co. for coordinating the evening and Don Mishler for giving us access to the high school track and the lights. It was a wonderful night.
