Please Support Me as I Run the 117th Boston Marathon for Team Red Cross!
Welcome from Ken!
Dear family, friends, teammates, colleagues:
I am very proud to be running the 117th Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013 as a member of Team Red Cross! I'm so honored to have been part of the inaugural team in 2012 and to continue to support the American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts through my own running!
As a runner for Team Red Cross, I am helping to save lives and change lives across the eastern Massachusetts region. Red Cross volunteers provide an impact at every level - for example locally by feeding those in need, providing food and shelter to fire victims, and regionally/nationally by mobilizing large scale responses to disasters such as Hurricane Sandy.
Please join me in supporting the Red Cross with a contribution toward my fundraising goal to benefit this amazing organization. I have pledged to raise a minimum of $1,000 to benefit the American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts.
Those of you who are familiar with my running know that I have a bit of unfinished business after my first two marathons last spring, coming so painfully close to achieving a qualifying time for the Boston Marathon. But as I always like to say, "running is a team sport" and my motivation is strengthened by knowing I can make a bigger difference than simply achieving a personal goal.
The American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts is one of the largest Red Cross chapters in the nation, serving 190 communities with a population of five million residents. Each year, more than 2,500 Red Cross volunteers, along with Red Cross staff, provide critical programs and services to nearly 690,000 people in need across the region, including: Disaster and Emergency Response; Health and Safety Training; Food and Nutrition Programs; Health Care Job Training, Services to Armed Forces, Youth Programs and more!
Follow my progress throughout the training season and check out the latest news regarding Team Red Cross.
Thank you for your support!
