BENEFITING: American Red Cross
ORGANIZER: American Red Cross Massachusetts Region
EVENT: 2016 Boston Marathon
My friends! - I am an engineer, Little Brother, Power Pooch, and Terrier. When I was a young lad, I stood on the sidelines for the big race, catching a glimpse from the nosebleed seats of the Prudential Center. Now, I am lucky enough to share a front row seat with my team in 2016.
I have traded in my tennis sneakers for running shoes, training for my first Boston Marathon. It is unreal anticipating how far I expect to progress as a distance runner in a few short months. This is an enormous time commitment I am willing to take on because I know I can make a valuable impact on our community and that means a lot to me.
I have been fortunate to receive support even from the most unexpected places. The Red Cross extends an outlet of hope and healing for those that do not have that luxury. Please join in supporting our team today. Thank you Team Red Cross, family, friends, and donors!
Hope to see some of you all on the big day. Let’s gooo!
Team Red Cross is honored to be an official charity partner of the Boston Athletic Association for the 2016 Boston Marathon!
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.
With every mile run and every dollar raised, Team Red Cross runners help to save and transform the lives of people in their greatest time of need. Together, we are the American Red Cross. And together, we will finish the race Boston Strong!
