NEWTON, Mass. (AP) - Some Boston College students who had planned to run the last five miles of the Boston Marathon route to honor those affected by this week's bombings have postponed the run and are planning campus vigils instead.
Danielle Cole, a sophomore, says on Wednesday that 17,000 people signed up online for the event on Friday, four days after the bombings killed three people and injured more than 170.
Cole says that was far more than they planned. But because the city and police bare still stretched investigating the bombings, she says they'll hold the event later, at a yet-to-be-determined date.
Instead, Boston College will hold a campus vigil at 4 p.m. Friday. She says they're working with colleges in Boston and around the country to hold vigils at the same time.
