Hi everyone! My name is Elicia Colon. I am a high school student who volunteers for the Red Cross.
Just recently, I started working with this organization. However, I quickly discovered the vast amount of things they do for this world. Whether it range from helping relieve disaster victims or giving blood to those in desperate need, the Red Cross is an organization which helps and benefits a vast amount of people. Personally, seeing the outreach and support this institution gives to so many inspires me as an individual to help further promote and praise such a great cause.
My passion is running, as I am a runner for Bloomfield High School. So, I thought to myself, "Why not combine the sport and organization so I can reach out to people in need and help them out?" Hence, the idea for this 5k was initiated.
I truly hope you all can participate, as the proceeds earned from the event will go towards the Red Cross. The run will take place October 6th of 2019. If you'd like to participate in the 5k, the minimum donation is $20. However, any amount you can give is greatly appreciated! Remember, "The need is real; the time is now." Thank you.
