BENEFITING: American Red Cross
EVENT DATE: Apr 28, 2013
Christina Arvanites and Erin Ferry want to dedicate their participation in the Inaugural Nike Women's Half Marathon DC to all of those affected by the Boston Marathon tragedy. As residents of Cranston, RI, they have numerous friends and family members from the Boston area and consider the city to be a second home. Some people have suggested that they forgo running in the DC race because of the events that transpired in Boston. Their answer? No way! They will continue to run and represent the rest of the racing community that was shocked by the events in Boston.
The Nike Women's Half Marathon will take place in Washington, DC on April 28, 2013! We are hoping to raise $1000.00 for the American Red Cross in less than two weeks. It's an ambitious goal, but this is a worthwhile cause that really hits close to home for the two of us. Please donate as much as you can in honor of the Boston Marathon tragedy!! Every dollar will go a long way towards helping the Red Cross.
