THE STORY:

As I mentally and physically prepared for my first marathon this upcoming October, I knew I wanted to run for a good cause/organization helping those in need. I joined the Red Cross running team just prior to the Harvey devastation in Houston and now have a personal connection to Irma. 

I was stuck in Miami last week after a work trip and it took over 13 hours following flight cancellations and delays to finally make it out. I also have an aunt in Tampa who was unable to find a flight out of Florida. We pray for her and the safety of all those affected. 

Please help support the Red Cross as they continue their work for relief for those impacted by Harvey, Irma, and other disaster relief efforts. THANK YOU!! 


Team Red Cross brings together runners of all ages and abilities in support of the American Red Cross. Team Red Cross prepares runners for success in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon while providing a rewarding charitable-giving experience.

The funds raised by Team Red Cross go directly to support the American Red Cross mission to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies.
The Red Cross focuses on five (5) lines of service:

- Blood Services

- Disaster Relief

- International Relief

- Preparedness, Health & Safety

- Service to the Armed Forces

All funds raised by Team Red Cross benefit American Red Cross programs and services throughout Chicago & Northern Illinois. When a child needs a blanket after a disaster, when a blood transfusion is received for a cancer patient, when a member of the armed forces receives support for their family, when a life is saved by CPR, the Red Cross is there because of the generosity of people like YOU.

Thank you for generously supporting the American Red Cross. If you have any questions about the Red Cross or our Chicago Marathon running team, please contact Stephanie Patton at stephanie.patton@redcross.org or 312-729-6135.
