City Sports 5K will raise money for the One Fund

City Sports, the athletic equipment retailer founded in Boston in 1983, is organizing a 5K run on Saturday to commemorate marathon bombing victims and raise money for The One Fund.

The run, which will begin with a moment of silence, is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. in front of the company’s Porter Square store on at 1815 Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge, according to a Thursday e-mail notice from City Sports.

“Let’s come together to look forward as we remember those affected, to stand up as a community and show our support, and to emerge stronger and more unified than ever before,” the e-mail said. “On Saturday, we run for Boston.”

A City Sports representative could not immediately be reached, but according to its e-mail, the company plans to donate $5 for every runner that participates to The One Fund.

The fund was set up by Governor Deval Patrick and Mayor Thomas M. Menino to support those affected by Monday’s explosions near the marathon finish line.

In addition, City Sports said it would sell commemorative T-shirts to benefit The One Fund, and that 26.2 percent of sales of remaining Boston Marathon merchandize would also be donated.
