WEST NYACK - Tuesday marks the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon attack.

A first-time marathon runner from Suffern is taking part in this year’s race to raise money for charity.

Tom Frigge has been training to turn himself into a long-distance runner since he usually only does half-marathons.

Frigge is not only running to raise money for cancer research, but also to send a message of hope in light of the terror attack that struck last year’s race.

It was one year ago on Tuesday that a pair of bombs near the Boston Marathon finish line killed three people and injured 260 others.
