Join Team Red Cross


Team Red Cross brings together runners of all ages and abilities in support of the American Red Cross mission to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.

Team Red Cross prepares runners for success in the New York City Marathon providing a rewarding charitable-giving experience. All funds raised by Team Red Cross benefit American Red Cross programs and services throughout Greater New York Region.

Team Red Cross runners commit to fundraising a minimum of $4,000, which goes directly to Red Cross Services. The money you raise during your training will make a real impact on our organization. Your incredible support allows the Red Cross to serve millions of people during times of disaster, to instruct health and safety classes, to support military families and veterans, and to provide a lifesaving blood supply.
