BOSTON (WHDH) — The Martin Richard Foundation and the Boston Bruins have teamed up for a road race that will honor first responders.

The “MR8K,” which will be held on Labor Day, will honor and raise money for first responders.

The 5K’s finish line will be center ice at the TD Garden. Martin Richard’s father, Bill Richard, said his son was a huge Bruins fan and felt it was appropriate to put something together with the team.

“We’re just fortunate in Boston to have historic franchises,” Bill Richard said. “And to not have something in the TD Garden, it seemed like something was missing.”

Registration for the race has already started online.
