Thousands take part in run to honor fallen officers

MIT police Sergeant Dave O’Connor stood by in uniform watching as the air horn blew in the misty gray light early Sunday morning and nearly 9,000 runners bounded across the starting line of the ninth Run to Remember.

The half-marathon and 5-mile races, dedicated to law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, drew police officers, military personnel, and civilians to honor the first responders to the Boston Marathon bombings and MIT police Officer Sean A. Collier, shot and killed in his squad car the night of April 18, allegedly by the bombing suspects.
