BENEFITING: American Red Cross

ORGANIZER: American Red Cross

EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017

DAY TO GO

Vanessa O'Brien

THE STORY:

✤   I have never run a Marathon before, and while I wouldn't think twice about climbing 5 miles high, 26.2 miles long seems like something I would never be ready to do.

✤ But then I remembered. The American Red Cross doesn't have that luxury. THEY HAVE TO BE READY 24 HOURS A DAY, SEVEN DAYS A WEEK, 365 DAYS A YEAR.

✤ With your support , they will continue to be Red Cross Ready.  Ready for whatever is likely to be thrown in their direction*

✤ The American Red Cross is one of the most efficient charities, with 91 cents of every dollar donated going directly to those in need. It accomplishes this through its effective network of volunteers.

Your donations will give me the courage to undertake this marathon and help The American Red Cross.  All donations are tax deductible.  Please consider Company Matches.  Any donation at $5,000 and I will speak at an event of your choice. 

* Drought, earthquake, fire, flood, chemical emergency, flu, food safety, heatwave, highway safety, hurricane, pet safety, tsunami, landslide, poisoning, terrorism, thunderstorm, tornado, volcano, water safety, wildfire, winter storm.
