We all have moments in our life when we feel helpless and don't know what to do. No matter what our circumstances are, we can always turn difficult moments into inspiration to do something good.
I never remotely considered running a marathon but my family and friends made me believe I could, so last year I trained for and ran my first marathon alone, this year I want to do it with you all and show that we can do anything we set our minds to and in the process help as many in need as possible, you can help as well, join me to support the Red Cross.
I'm proud to run with Team Red Cross because...
Team Red Cross brings together runners of all ages, background, and abilities in support of the American Red Cross while providing a rewarding charitable-giving experience.
The mission of the American Red Cross is to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors. Your gift will directly support the lifesaving mission of the American Red Cross.
Because of YOU, when a disaster strikes, the Red Cross is there to provide food, shelter, relief supplies, and hope to individuals displaced by a disaster. At the same time, communities are receiving Red Cross training in First Aid, CPR, and disaster preparedness to help save lives.
When military recruits prepare to leave for military service, the Red Cross is there with them, explaining how we will support them and their families throughout their military career and beyond.
When the international community calls upon us, the American Red Cross is there alongside our Red Cross and Red Crescent societies to provide relief and hope around the globe.
And, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, we provide hospitals with lifesaving blood products from volunteer donors.
Thank you for generously supporting the American Red Cross!
