One Boston Day marks anniversary of marathon tragedy

BOSTON, MA (WWBT) - Three years after the Boston Marathon bombings, the website is encouraging people around the world to perform acts of kindness.

"April 15th, 2015 marked the beginning of a new annual Boston tradition: One Boston Day," said group organizers on the site. "Each year, the day will serve as an opportunity to celebrate the resiliency, generosity, and strength demonstrated by the people of Boston and those around the world in response to the tragedy of April 15th, 2013."

In a video on the site, representatives from the city and national media, as well as Vice President Joe Biden, talk about Boston's residents and their resiliency following the tragedy that killed three and injured more than 250 people.

"Boston owns the finish line," Biden said.
