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.
