BENEFITING: American Red Cross
ORGANIZER: American Red Cross Massachusetts Region
EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
As many of you know, I consider myself a casual marathoner, having run marathons in New York, California, Hawaii, Alaska and Florida in a slow journey toward 50 marathons in 50 states. After the 2013 bombings in Boston I knew that Boston (and thus Massachusetts) would be next.
It is not hyperbole to say that the 2013 tragedy directly impacted friends in the area and affected countless others indirectly. So I am proud to run for a cause for a change and partner with the American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts to help raise money for relief efforts for this tragedy and other worthy services.
I deeply appreciate any contribution you can make on my behalf.
Team Red Cross is honored to be an official charity team of the 118th Boston Marathon® and the 2014 John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon Program.
Funds raised by Team Red Cross 2014 participants will benefit American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts programs and services.
