and the Mount Charleston Carpenter Fire.
The American Red Cross responds to over 70,000 disasters in the US every year from house fires to earthquakes. Internationally, they reach over 100 million people in humanitarian and disaster relief efforts around the globe.
In 2013, I am completing 7 races in 7 different cities, and I want my efforts to support the compassion and hope provided by the Red Cross's volunteers and employees. They all share a mission of preventing and relieving suffering, here at home and around the world.
