BENEFITING: American Red Cross

ORGANIZER: American Red Cross of Massachusetts

EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014

EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014



As a lifelong runner, I’ve slowly trudged across many a finish line over the years. With two marathons under my belt over 15 years ago, I’ve come to wonder, “Do I have one more left in me?” The answer is YES!

On April 21, 2014, I will join Team Red Cross to run 26.2 miles to raise funds to support its mission to alleviate human suffering in the face of disaster. We will run for those affected by the Boston Marathon bombing and the aftermath. And we will finish, Boston Strong.

This opportunity to be a part of Team Red Cross in the Boston Marathon is truly a dream come true. It marries my love of the sport and the opportunity to support an organization that touches so many in their greatest times of need. I never considered running in Boston as a viable option for a plodding runner like me but I am fully committed to do the training and the mileage to complete this challenge. I hope you’ll join and support me in this journey through both your words of encouragement and you donations in support of Team Red Cross.

The Red Cross is there when people need it most. Through your generosity the Red Cross is be able to provide vital life-saving programs and services such as aid to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan, Hurricane Sandy and those hit hardest by recent mid-west storms and tornadoes. The Red Cross of Massachusetts provided immediate and lifesaving support to those so horribly injured in last year’s race and is committed to keeping Boston strong and resilient.

Funds raised by Team Red Cross 2014 participants will benefit American Red Cross of Massachusetts programs and services.

I thank you for your continued generosity and support.
