For over 30 years the American Red Cross of Massachusetts has been an integral part of the iconic Boston Marathon, providing hundreds of volunteers each year to help ensure that runners and spectators are safe along the 26.2 mile course from Hopkinton to Boston.
Team Red Cross was founded as an official charity eight years ago and on Marathon Monday, April 15th, 60 runners will proudly represent Team Red Cross as Runners on a Mission.
As one of the most prestigious Marathons in the world, Boston welcomes thousands of runners from more than 100 countries and all 50 states. Annually, an estimated 1 million spectators line the streets to cheer on more than 30,000 runners. The Boston Marathon is one of the six World Marathon Majors, making it a key destination for runners worldwide.
