The Baton Rouge area has been devastated by recent floods. The flooding is the worst US natural disaster since Hurricane Sandy, yet it has not received a ton of media coverage. Approximately 86,000 people have already registered with FEMA for relief. There were an estimated 111,000 homes in the flood zone and only about 15% were covered by flood insurance.
I've decided to use my participation in the Disneyland Half Marathon on September 4 to raise awareness about the floods and to raise money for the Red Cross to support their relief effort.
