ORRC MERCHANDISE DISCONTINUED
Due to insufficient demand, ORRC has had to discontinue the ORRC Merchandise website where members could order merchandise with the ORRC logo on it. We are sorry we were not able to make this option work for our members and will work on other options for those interested in purchasing something in the future.
Dear ORRC Running Family,
On behalf of the ORRC Board of Directors, our volunteers and members, we wish to express our sympathies to the runners, family members and many friends and supporters affected by the tragic events at the Boston Marathon on Monday. What was supposed to be a celebration of life and joy and achievement turned into tragedy and horror where running and finishing didn’t matter. We wish to thank everyone who stepped up to help those injured and affected by the events, including the many wonderful community members in Boston who volunteered their homes and assistance to runners who were unable to finish the race. But especially to all of the first responders who took action to assist the injured.
As RRCA has stated, we encourage our members and all runners to keep running and racing in the days, weeks, months and years to come. The running community is the most generous group of people in the country and around the world and the victims will need our support. However, we echo the RRCA in expressing caution to our members to be smart about giving money until an official charity is designated by race officials. If you prefer to give now, we again, echo the RRCA and encourage you to support locally established organizations, such as the American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts (www.redcross.org/ma/boston).
Our thoughts and wishes are with you and all of those affected by these events.
