On the one-month anniversary of the blasts that tore at a nation's heart, Caitlin and Colleen Norden, their uncle Peter Brown and some friends set off from the fabled Boston Marathon starting line in Hopkinton, Massachusetts with a goal of making it to the finish line on Boylston Street.

They are calling it the 'Sisters Healing, Step by Step Walk.'

"We are doing this in tribute for them. They went to watch their friend finish, so we are gonna finish it for them," said Caitlin Norden, whose two brothers were injured by the blasts four weeks ago.

The idea is to raise money and awareness for their two brothers, P.J. and Paul, both of whom lost their right legs in the second bomb blast.

"I feel like for what they've been through, we can handle a few blisters to get through this, so, just having them in our mind will get us through," Caitlin said.
