THE STORY:

Hello! We are Greta Plante and Karen Carlin and we want to thank you for visiting our site and contributing to both our life long goal to run the Boston Marathon together and the wonderful organization that is the American Red Cross. We have been best friends for literally our entire lives, and have shared so many wonderful adventures and memories together.  It all started with running around on the streets of Auburn, Massachusetts as elementary school friends, but since then our experiences (and troubles) have included scuba diving, camping and skiing in many beautiful places around the world, and then watching each other get married, have children, and grow slightly older (and we hope a little wiser). We have now decided to face our biggest challenge together (other than our husbands). You guessed it. We have agreed that this year we will run 26.2 miles as part of the historic Boston Marathon.   This will be our first time running the Boston Marathon, and we intend to approach our winter training in the northeast with a few laughs, a lot of heart, and without any fear of that "hill"...  On April 17, 2017, we will finish Boston Strong! 

With any challenge, there is struggle, and life itself can simply be a struggle all by itself. That is what we have decided to run in support of an organization with a strong history of chairtable work. The American Red Cross exists to provide compassionate care to those in need around the world. The network of generous donors, volunteers and employees share a mission of preventing and relieving suffering here at home and around the world through five key service areas: Disaster Services, Service to the Armed Forces, Biomedical Services, Health and Safety Services and International Services.  The American Red Cross of Massachusetts serves over three hundred cities and towns across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts with a population of over 6.6 million people. Since 2012, Team Red Cross runners have raised more than one million dollars in support of American Red Cross programs and services in Massachusetts and beyond. 

We hope to collectively raise $20,000 for the American Red Cross and we ask that you please help up reach our goal!
