The Boston Marathon features quite a few reminders about how the city has moved on since the bombings three years ago.

That includes dozens of people running in honor of 8-year-old Martin Richard, the youngest person killed in the bombing. They are all part of a running team named "Team MR8," and they're raising money for the Martin Richard Foundation.

Martin Richard's father, Bill Richard, joined Morning Edition to talk about the work of the foundation.
