FRANKLIN, Tenn. -

Nearly 300 people gathered at the Franklin Square on Friday night for a walk and vigil to show their support for the people of Boston in the aftermath of Monday's bombings at the Boston Marathon.

Though Boston is miles away from Franklin, many local runners and others in the community felt the need to do something in solidarity of all those affected.

The group walked through the streets of the city, as a united front.

Molly Brown-Boulay ran the Boston Marathon in 2010 and the finish line holds a special place in her heart, which one reason she felt compelled to organize the vigil.

"There have been efforts all over the country, and probably around the world. That's just moved my heart all week long to feel like I'm part of a bigger community who are in support of this and just show that we are united and we are not going to let this stop us," Brown-Boulay told Nashville's News 2.

The group has also organized a Facebook page called Franklin Unite For Boston.

Friday night's walk in Franklin was one of many events in Middle Tennessee for the people of Boston.
