BOSTON (AP) — Hundreds of runners are gearing up for the second coast-to-coast One Run for Boston relay race to honor three people killed in the Boston Marathon bombing and raise funds for 260 people wounded in the attack.

The non-stop relay will begin March 16 in Santa Monica, Calif., and end April 13 in Boston, two days before the anniversary of the twin explosions and a week before this year's marathon.

Last year's relay raised $91,000 for The One Fund, a charity established to help those injured or significantly affected by the bombing. Organizers hope to raise $1 million this year.

Joan Meagher of Boston says the explosions plunged her into a deep depression, but participating in last year's relay pulled her out of it when nothing else was working.
