Young Irish dancers come together to honor Boston victim

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- The nation was heartbroken by the death of the youngest victim in the Boston Marathon bombings -- eight-year-old Martin Richard.

Richard's sister, Jane and her mother were severely injured when two bombs went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

Jane lost her leg as a result of the bombings, and the little girl had just taken up Irish dancing.

In Milwaukee on Saturday night, April 27th, some young dancers held an event to honor Jane at Dominican High School.

Some of the proceeds from Saturday's event will benefit the Richards family.
