THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Family,

As many of you may not know, many years ago my life was saved due to the selfless act of donating blood. I was a year and a half old when I was viciously attacked by a dog and nearly bled out in my moms arms. I was bitten on my feet, hands, and most severely on my face. I was in surgery for 9 hours that day and received multiple blood transfusions. Over the next 3 years I would undergo 3 more surgeries and several more blood transfusions as I slowly started to recover.

This year I am celebrating my 35th Birthday and as a way to celebrate I will be running the Chicago Marathon with the American Red Cross! My life was saved through the generosity of those who donated blood and I ask that you help me fulfill my fundraising goal of $1,500 to help those in need like I once was.

Thank You for supporting the American Red Cross and Me!

-Steven

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!
