Bracelets made from 2013 Marathon banners to benefit the One Fund

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Bracelets made from the 2013 Boston Marathon street banners were made into bracelets to raise money for the One Fund.

Those looking to buy a bracelet are asked to contribute a $5 minimum donation. John Hancock agreed to donate the administrative costs so that 100% of the proceeds could be given to the fund created to help the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Sales reached more than $3,000 just two hours after city officials unveiled the 2014 banners and announced the sale of the bracelets.

The 2014 Boston Marathon banners featured a street and "Boston" inside of a heart. The theme of the event is "We Run Together."

"The banners are a sign of Boston's resilience," said Boston Mayor Marty Walsh at the unveiling Thursday.
