Tributes planned as Marathon bombing anniversary nears

As the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings approaches, groups in the Boston area are planning events to remember victims, talk about the fallout, and raise money for survivors.

On Saturday morning, people in a crowd assembled at the finish line threw their arms up and cheered as Gregory Heisler stood on a lift, 15 feet in the air, and took a photo for the cover of Sports Illustrated, which will be on the stands Wednesday. Magazine staff estimated that about 3,000 people were there.
