Knights of Columbus raise money on campus for Boston Marathon victims


Notre Dame, Ind. For many people, an ND game is not complete without a steak sandwich from the Knights of Columbus.

The group took advantage of the massive crowds Saturday to raise money for victims of the Boston Marathon bombings with their sales.

They sold about 74,000 sandwiches.

A portion of proceeds are going to provide prosthetics for those who lost limbs in the attacks last spring.

“But what we would like to see is them running again or have them swimming again,” explained Jeffrey Gerlomes. “Doing the kind of things that make things like this whether it's the Boston Marathon or whether its just a great old college rivalry day such a great experience for everyone involved.”

In the past, the group has raised as much as $10,000 per game for various charities.
