SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -

Following the bombings at the Boston marathon, many runners wanted to help out, so they're doing so by running a relay.

"This is where the water storage is."

Amanda Lynn Hughes will need plenty of water. She's running in a relay for Boston.

"This is something that is a once in a lifetime chance, to show how much you care about society in general, especially about those people who lost their lives so tragically or lost limbs."

They will be raising money every mile -- and she's not alone. She's running with 1,100 other people.

"It's crazy, I have now bonded with 11 hundred people that I didn't know before," says Amanda.

Amanda knows a good friend who ran the Boston marathon. When she heard the news of the bombing Amanda started to worry.

"I didn't hear from her for a little while, and I freaked out. I couldn't imagine anything ever happening to her."

Grateful for her friend's safety, she wanted to help. Amanda says she's not great runner, but she'll run like one for the relay.

Amanda ran a 14-mile stretch on Route 66.
