Why Run for the Red?
For over a century, the American Red Cross has worked to improve the quality of human life, to enhance self-reliance and concern for others, and to help people prevent, prepare for, and cope with emergencies.
We are not a government funded organization, and rely solely on the generosity of the community to fund our humanitarian relief operations down the street, across the country, and around the world. In the Chesapeake Region alone, the American Red Cross responds to an average of 3 disasters each day. The most common of these are house fires.
When your register with the Run for the Red Team, you commit to saving the life of a person in need. Whether by a lifesaving blood transfusion, an emergency communication message to a service member overseas, counseling with a mental health volunteer or a warm meal and place to stay, to a Red Cross client your support translates into hope.
Please visit www.redcross-cmd.org for the latest information on our work throughout the Chesapeake Region including volunteer opportunities, corporate engagement, special events, course schedules and disaster relief operations and preparedness programs happening in your area.
