BOSTON (CBS) – As many Boston Marathon runners train for Boston, a big part is raising money for charity.
People gathered at the St. James Armenian Church in Watertown Saturday night to raise money for kids like Gabriel Aljalian.
The 4-year-old was diagnosed with Leukemia in November.
Gabriel is Sarkis Chekijian’s patient running partner.
So far, Chekijian has raised over $7,000, all of which will benefit the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
To donate, go to the Sarkis Runs Facebook page.
