BENEFITING: American Red Cross
ORGANIZER: American Red Cross Chicago Chapter
EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2013
I have been a supporter of the Red Cross of Greater Chicago for a few years now, as both a donor and a volunteer. Now I have decided to challenge myself to both raise money for the American Red Cross and the good this organization represents, with the added challenge of culminating this fundraiser by running in the Chicago Marathon on October 13, 2013!

As a member of Team Red Cross, you can be symbol of hope just like the Red Cross: When a child needs a hug and a blanket after a disaster, when a blood transfusion is received, when a member of the armed forces receives support for their family, when a life is saved by CPR.
Team Red Cross runners receive exclusive benefits like training, team apparel, race-day benefits, and more!
