KS Inmates Raise Money for Boston Victims


TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Inmates at a Kansas prison who are members of a running club have raised money for Boston Marathon bombing victims. Topeka Correctional Facility inmate Konnie Kellogg organized the race at the all-female prison's track this month. It raised $1,500 for the Boston 1 Fund benefiting the survivors of the marathon bombing and their families.The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the about 50 women took part in the fundraising run, which was held June 12. Some inmates who didn't run donated cash or bought race T-shirts. The entry fee was $25; shirts were $15. The running group picks out four charities to help each year. Runs in the past have benefited the Topeka Rescue Mission and breast cancer research.
