A week from today, all eyes will be on the 2014 Boston Marathon as thousands of runners take to the 26.2-mile course and the city marks the one year anniversary of the bombings that killed three and wounded more than 260.

Whether you plan to be a spectator or cheering from your couch, there are myriad ways to wear Boston pride on your sleeve, chest or elsewhere.

Various businesses are offering products all month that will donate a percentage of proceeds to One Fund Boston, including the original "Boston Strong" t-shirt that was designed by two Emerson College students within hours of the attack and has since raised more than $1 million.
