To close out the week of remembrance, Sinema will run alongside other members of Team MR8, a charity created in honor of 8-year-old victim Martin Richard, in the Boston Marathon on Monday.
Team MR8, the Martin Richard Charitable Foundation, was created by the parents of Martin Richard, the 8 year-old boy killed in the Boston bombing. The foundation’s mission is to promote Martin’s message of peace by investing in education, athletics and community. To contribute, click here.
