SCHENECTADY - Local Muslims launched two initiatives yesterday in the hopes of helping the city of Boston heal after the marathon bombings.

The Muslim Community Center presented a $2,000 check to Congressman Paul Tonko for “One Fund Boston”.

The local Muslim girl scout troop kicked off a bottle and can drive.

People could also sign up to join the Muslim Women For Fitness as they run in the Freihofer's run for women on June 1st in memory of those who lost their lives in the Boston tragedy.
