Run for Boston – Help us Donate to The One Fund Boston

TheONeFundDonation copy

The tragic events that occurred during the Boston Marathon this past Monday will never be forgotten. In order to honor everyone affected by the tragedy, Active Accessories will be taking an active part in the relief effort. As an organization, we stand for “being active,” which means healthy living, especially through running. Company founder, Karen Welby, has been a competitive runner for over 15 years, coached collegiate student athletes, and privately trains clients for road races.

As the world’s oldest annual marathon, the participants, the supporters, and the event itself represent an ideal of our healthy living model. Consequently, the tragedy that occurred here comes as an attack on our values as a company, as runners, and as human beings. Ensuring the comfort and care of the victims, and supporting the continuation of all marathons requires standing strong with Boston.

As sign of support and unity, from now until May 15th at 2:50pm EST, we will donate $2 to the The One Fund Boston for every Active Hair Band Bracelet Set sold.

Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino established The One Fund Boston “to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013.” Victims’ enduring struggles will be both physical from injuries and psychological from the day’s trauma.  Pain will also spread to victim’s families, friends and communities who must support them in these difficult times.

Join us in doing our part to lift up all of them, runners, families and friends like all of us, as they strive to overcome this tragedy.
