Why I Run: I have been a runner my whole life. Later in life, holding down a full-time job, I came back to running as my source of 'sanity' in a world that constantly forces you to stay connected at all times. Running is my place where I can refocus, escape and rejuvenate. I also run because I am a fat kid on the inside and love eating pizza, wine, carbs...etc.
Why fundraise for the Red Cross? The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors. An average of 91 cents of every dollar the American Red Cross spends is invested in humanitarian services and programs. Everything we do depends on the needs of the people that we serve.
Please donate and help support me not just for this run, but the Red Cross in their ongoing efforts to make this world a little less shit.
