The following is a statement by Salvador Cerna, President of Pilsen Neighbors Community Council on Boston Tragedy:

On behalf of Pilsen Neighbors Community Council, I want to express our sincere sympathy and condolences to the victims and families, and all of those affected in Boston. Our thoughts and prayers remain with all those touched by this unfortunate event. Peace, prayers and blessings.
 
The Recorrido del Sol 5K and the Illinois Dream Fund made the following statement:

The Recorrido del Sol 5K committee would like to express their sympathies for the tragic events that affected the running community in Boston. We understand that a tragedy like this may produce a variety of emotions which include sadness, shock, anxiety and fear for our own safety. Given that our 5K event will take place this Sunday, we would like to confirm with you that the event will still hold place. Our organizing committee has been in touch with the proper institutions to ensure that there is no direct threat to Chicago.
 
A statement released by the Chicago Office of Emergency and Management said, “We are closely monitoring events as they unfold in Boston and the City of Chicago’s public safety departments are actively communicating with our law enforcement partners both locally and throughout the country.”

We will hold a moment of silence in honor of those affected at the Boston Marathon before we begin our run/walk this Sunday, April 21, 2013. We will run to honor those who participated in and supported the Boston Marathon.
