Adidas America president, Patrik Nilsson, said in a release: “The selflessness and compassion demonstrated by the city of Boston, the first responders, the Boston Athletic Association and all marathon volunteers in providing assistance to the injured have stuck with us and inspired us.”

“We commend Boston - and those associated with the city and the marathon - for their reaction to this very challenging situation. We applaud them for standing together as one on Monday and in the days which have followed.”

The T-shirts can be purchased from the Adidas website.
