For several reasons i am currently unable to donate blood to the American Red Cross, in lieu of blood it seemed like a good idea to run a race and raise money. We all know that the Red Cross is great, please read below for more details or go to www.redcross.org and consider making a donation. If you can't give money, give blood!
The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.
The Marine Corps Marathon serves as an advocate for the values of courage and commitment fostered by United States Marine Corps, and strives to enhance the quality of life aboard Marine Corp Base Quantico for the military members, their families and the supporting community. The American Red Cross is proud to support our armed forces on and off the blacktop!
