There has been an outpouring of support for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings, and the latest comes from the Kraft family.

In a statement released by the Patriots and Revolution on Tuesday, the Krafts have pledged to match the first $100,000 in donations to assist recovery for victims of the Boston Marathon tragedy.

“We are grieving for the victims of this senseless act,” said Robert Kraft. “It is not lost on us that this tragedy occurred on Patriots Day, at an event where our own staff and their families were participating, and where thousands of runners were raising money for charities with which we are associated either through our Foundation, our alumni or our friends. Our focus is on helping those in need and beginning the healing process. We hope by matching donations we will encourage more people to give.”

Thirty four members of the Patriots Charitable Foundation marathon team, including Patriots and Revolution staff and their families, participated in the Boston Marathon on Patriots Day.
