Family of marathon victim seeks charity runners

BOSTON (AP) -- The family of an 8-year-old boy killed in the Boston Marathon bombing has created a charitable foundation in his memory and is recruiting a team of charity runners for this year's marathon.

In a blog posting Monday, the family said the Martin W. Richard Charitable Foundation's mission is to invest in education, athletics and community. The family said "Team MR8" will recruit runners committed to the foundation's mission.

The boy was one of three people killed at the April 15, 2013, marathon when two bombs exploded near the finish line. Authorities say two brothers from Russia who had lived in Cambridge for about a decade planted the bombs.

The family said Martin's younger sister, Jane, who lost part of her left leg, is walking with a new prosthesis and playing basketball for her Catholic Youth Organization team.
