Starting Sunday, checks will be distributed to help the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Nearly $61 million will go to 232 individuals and families.

The money was raised by "The One Fund," a group established to give financial assistance to those hurt in in the bombings.

Relatives of those who died in the attack as well as victims who suffered the most serious injuries will each receive about $2.2 million.
