Posted: Updated:

NEWPORT, N.H. (AP) - Residents of a small New Hampshire town will congregate at a high school track to take "A Walk for Boston" to raise money for the victims of Monday's twin bombings at the Boston Marathon.

The event will run from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at the Newport High School track. Funds raised will be donated to The One Fund Boston.

Steve Smith, general manager of local radio station WCNL, says he wants to fill the track with people wearing Boston team shirts to help the healing process.

Smith will D.J. the event and plans to play the music of a lot of Boston-based bands like the Dropkick Murphys and J. Geils Band.

A candlelight vigil is planned for 8 p.m.
