Dozens Show They’re ‘Boston Strong’ in Copley

Emerson College students Chris Dobens and Nicholas Reynolds discuss the outpouring of support for their "Boston Strong" t-shirts that have raised nearly $  900,000 for the One Fund Boston.

Despite overcast skies, several dozen people donned their “Boston Strong” t-shirts Tuesday in Copley Square after the shirt designers dropped off a check for nearly $ 900,000 with the One Fund Boston.

Emerson College students Nicholas Reynolds and Chris Dobens came up with the idea for the shirts hours after the Boston Marathon bombings April 15. They couldn’t have imagined the outpouring of support they’ve seen over nearly two months.

On Tuesday, they wanted to gather as many people in their “Boston Strong” shirts as they could for a group photo.

“This has been absolutely amazing to see,” said Reynolds.
