BENEFITING: American Red Cross
EVENT: 2015 Chicago Marathon
EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2015
I served as an AmeriCorps Member with the American Red Cross of Greater Chicago from 2011-2012. My AmeriCorps team taught basic health and safety skills to community members throughout Chicago and the Chicago area. I was always amazed how many people would wake up early on a Saturday to learn how to keep their families and friends safe in disasters and emergencies. It was so exciting to see the impact the Red Cross has in the community every single day from preparedness education to disaster relief!
Because of my enthusiasm for the impact the American Red Cross has in our communities, I am running my first marathon this year with Team Red Cross. I am excited to support the life-saving mission of the American Red Cross! Thank you for your donation to the American Red Cross!
