BENEFITING: American Red Cross
ORGANIZER: American Red Cross Massachusetts Region
EVENT: 2016 Boston Marathon
Team Red Cross is honored to be an official charity partner of the Boston Athletic Association for the 2016 Boston Marathon and I am honored to be running with this team.
On April 18, 2016, more than 60 Team Red Cross members will run the historic 26.2 miles from Hopkinton to Boston in support of the American Red Cross mission.
Last year, I announced it was my last Boston. It is so hard to train in the harsh New England winters, the marathon day's weather is always a challenge from 80 degrees in 2012 to 45, windy and rainy in 2015 and the course itself is challenging.
But life can change suddenly and sadly. I lost my best friend, my husband, unexpectantly and suddenly last June. I am running to help me heal from the hardest thing I have ever had to go thru. Supporting the mission of the Red Cross makes this even more special to me as the Red Cross is always there when tradegy strikes unexpectantly.
Plus its the 50th Year that women were offically able to run in this marathon, its the fifth year for Team Red Cross and it will be my 10th Boston Marathon. So that is reason enough to run (well I think so anyways as have been talking myself into this for a few months).
Thank you for your friendship. Thank you for supporting me and the mission of the American Red Cross.
You can donate on line but there is a fee, or send me a check made out to the American Red Cross, C/O
