Team Red Cross is honored to be an official charity team of the 119th B.A.A. Boston Marathon®
On April 20, 2015, more than 50 Team Red Cross members will run the historic 26.2 miles from Hopkinton to Boston in support of the American Red Cross mission!
With every mile run and every dollar raised, Team Red Cross runners help to save and transform the lives of people in their greatest time of need. And together, we will finish the race Boston Strong.
Funds raised by Team Red Cross benefit American Red Cross programs and services across Massachusetts. Since 2012, 94 Team Red Cross runners have raised more than $560,000 to support Red Cross programs and services. Runners of all ages and abilities proudly represent the American Red Cross at the Boston Marathon, from first time marathoners to experienced competitors.
The American Red Cross exists to provide compassionate care to those in need. Our network of generous donors, volunteers, and employees share a mission of preventing and relieving suffering here at home and around the world through five key service areas: disaster relief, supporting America’s military families, supplying lifesaving blood, health and safety services, and international services.
The American Red Cross of Massachusetts is one of the largest Red Cross chapters in the nation. We stand ready to assist the citizens of our Commonwealth in times of disaster to meet emergency needs; to alleviate hunger; to make ours a more resilient Massachusetts; and to educate our next generation in preparedness, health, safety and aquatics.
