Moment Of Silence For 5th Anniversary Of Boston Marathon Bombings

(Boston, MA) – Today marks five years since the deadly Boston Marathon bombings that left three people dead and hundreds of others injured. The anniversary is dubbed “One Boston Day,” and has become a day of service in the community to celebrate the city’s resilience after the 2013 terror attacks.

A wreath-laying ceremony at the finish line this morning is set to be followed by a moment of silence at 2:49 p.m. Eastern, the time when the first explosion went off. Other events taking place in the city include blood drives, sneaker drives and school cleanups.

Thousands of runners will hit the pavement for the 122nd running of the Boston Marathon tomorrow.
