(NEW BEDFORD, Mass.) -- Gov. Deval Patrick signed a bill on Friday that authorizes the Massachusetts Registrar of Motor Vehicles to create a license plate memorializing the victims of last year's Boston Marathon bombings.
The Governor's Office says that all proceeds from the sales of the "Boston Strong" license plates would be distributed to the One Fund or another non-profit organization offering assistance to the bombing victims.
Patrick said that "seeing these plates on the road will help remind us all that we are one community and we are proud to be Boston Strong."
This year's marathon takes place on Monday and will be among the largest in history with 36,000 official participants, the Governor's Office said.
