A local race coming up this weekend will raise funds to help the people affected by the Boston Marathon bombings.

Sunday's "Save Our Switchbacks" Road Race will take place at the Parkway Ski Chalet in Utica starting at 9:00.

Race Director Jerry Tylutki ran in Monday's Boston Marathon.

Tylutki says donation boxes will be set up to benefit the One Fund.

In addition to the donations, a portion of the race day registrations will be given to the One Fund on behalf of the Utica Roadrunners.
