In light of the recent bombings at the Boston Marathon, My brother Jon and I, alongside our good friend Sasha Israel, have decided to run the Brooklyn Half Marathon in one month in support of the American Red Cross. To find out how the Red Cross has helped victims and families after this event and to learn more about the Red Cross, you can go to www.redcross.org. The Brooklyn Half takes place on May 18th and winds its way from Prospect Park all the way down to the boardwalk at Coney Island.
Sasha recently completed the The 2013 More Magazine Half Marathon! She ran the More Magazine Half in support of The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, which you can learn more about at www.holeinthewallgang.org.
In an effort to raise money for the Red Cross, I have created this fundraising page. If you're able, please support us and make a donation towards this incredible organization that has and will continue to provide disaster relief and other services in the US and abroad.
Please feel free to pass this on to anyone you think might be interested.
Matt, Jon, and Sasha
The Red Cross responds to approximately 70,000 disasters in the United States every year, ranging from home fires that affect a single family to hurricanes that affect tens of thousands, to earthquakes that impact millions. In these events, the Red Cross provides shelter, food, health and mental health services to help families and entire communities get back on their feet. Although the Red Cross is not a government agency, it is an essential part of the response when disaster strikes. We work in partnership with other agencies and organizations that provide services to disaster victims.
