Let me get right to it: I joined Team Red Cross to run the 2018 Chicago Marathon on October 8. You know that the Red Cross is an organization I support with my money, my time and my blood and platelets. Their mission to alleviate human suffering, turning compassion into action for the benefit of all persons without taking sides, mirrors my personal values. I’m still not sure why I thought running my first marathon (at my age) was a good idea but I definitely know that being a member of Team Red Cross keeps that dream alive for me.
So here’s my “Ask”: Please support me! It’s a win-win – The Red Cross gets your money and I get your support! OK so I understand that picturing me exhauted after running 26 miles is not as cute as some of the other asks you get. But I guarantee if there is a tornado, a hurricaine, a fire, a zombie apocalypse, if you or someone you know needs help in the armed services, or you need blood in the hospital, the Red Cross will be there for you.
As always, many, many thanks!
