CLARKS SUMMIT — Another group of area runners who ran the Boston Marathon are trying to raise money for the victims of the bombing attack.

They have started a donation fund called “N-E-P-A for Boston”.

“We were all the lucky ones,” said Nancy Werthmuller. “We were the ones who actually finished the race, had a great time and benefited from the Boston Marathon so we felt that in the face of all the disaster that we should return something to Boston for all the good it gave us.”

The group is working with the Luzerne Foundation to collect donations, which will go to “One-Fund Boston” To help those critically injured in the attack.

You can find out more about making a donation by calling 570-714-1570.
