Sisters of Marathon victims walk route to help their brothers


BOSTON ( -- Family members of two brothers injured in the Boston Marathon bombings walked the race route Wednesday.

J.P. and Paul Norden's sisters, Colleen and Caitlin, as well as their uncle, Peter Brown, walked the route to pay tribute to the injured men and raise money for their recovery. The brothers were expected to meet their sisters and uncle at the finish line Wednesday night.

Both brothers each lost a leg in the April 15 bombings that killed three and injured more than 260. They were watching the race outside Forum on Boylston Street when the second bomb exploded.

Paul and J.P. were in separate hospitals for weeks before J.P., who is 33, joined his 31-year-old brother at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston on Friday.

The brothers expect to be fitted for prosthetic devices in about two months' time.

In the meantime, their sisters are hoping to reach 10,000 people that will consider pledging their support. The Norden family has created several ways to help Paul and J.P. To help, see the full list of options below.
