THE STORY:

Today is my birthday (31!) and if we’ve been in touch the past few years, you know I love to use the opportunity and extra attention to raise money in support of Charity: Water… 

But this year, one month from today on April 21st, I’m running the Boston Marathon! I’m lucky to run with Team Red Cross, and so this year we (yes, you and I) are raising money to support the amazing lifesavers of The American Red Cross of Massachusetts.

As you remember, last year’s Boston Marathon was forever changed by the senseless bombing at the finish line, and it was the American Red Cross who responded within minutes by helping runners, visitors, spectators and first responders. In the days, weeks and months to follow, the American Red Cross provided food, shelter, financial support, and mental health services to those affected, from victims and family members to first responders and community members.

We’re all praying for a safe race day this year, but the aid of The American Red Cross goes so much further than events… whether it’s disaster relief from storms like Sandy, supporting America’s military families, supplying lifesaving blood donations to those in need, or their everyday health and safety services - The American Red Cross is a vital support network for all of us in times of need.

But to execute their mission, they need our support. So, let’s rally together to donate to The American Red Cross! By donating, you will support a tremendous organization AND be relieved of getting me a birthday present. ;)

Training has been brutal through this polar-vortexed-winter, but I found extra motivation when thinking of those The Red Cross aim to serve. On race day, I’m hoping to break 3 hours and 30 minutes, more importantly, I’m hoping we can raise over $4000 together! 

Please consider a donation and help spread the word!

Thanks and love!
