Inmates at a Kansas prison who are members of a running club have raised money for Boston Marathon bombing victims.

Topeka Correctional Facility inmate Konnie Kellogg organized the race at the all-female prison's track this month. It raised $1,500 for the Boston 1 Fund benefiting the survivors of the marathon bombing and their families.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the about 50 women took part in the fundraising run, which was held June 12.

Some inmates who didn't run donated cash or bought race T-shirts.
The entry fee was $25; shirts were $15.

The running group picks out four charities to help each year. Runs in the past have benefited the Topeka Rescue Mission and breast cancer research.
