Runners turned out in the hundreds on April 22 at De Anza Cove to support the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings with a “Boston Strong San Diego” memorial race. The event, one of several that took place around the country one week after the bombings, started with a moment of silence, pictured above.

Other events are in the works to support victims. A fundraiser to benefit The One Fund Boston will take place at Thrusters Lounge in Pacific Beach from 6 to 9 p.m. today, April 25. The event will feature free samples from Bite of Boston, along with a raffle of items donated by local businesses.

There will be a suggested $5 donation at the door and raffle tickets and T-shirts will be available for sale. Prizes include Padres tickets, memberships to Bird Rock Fit and gift cards to area businesses. Thrusters Lounge is located at 4633 Mission Blvd.

For more information or to donate a raffle prize, email Karyn Houde at
