Oh my gosh, I am so excited to be participating in the Skate for Red Cross of Alaska event! The Red Cross has been a part of my life since a young age when my family almost lost our house to wildfires. We were homeless for a couple days until some family friends took us in. It was amazing to see how the Red Cross really helped the community find a place to stay, food to eat, and clothes when we had nothing. Just recently, I started to volunteer for the Red Cross and I am so thrilled to be a part of making our community even better!
