The American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts is a proud member of the esteemed B.A.A. Boston Marathon Charity Program. Team Red Cross is one of 31 charity teams running the 117th B.A.A. Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013.
Now in its second year, Team Red Cross brings together runners of all ages and abilities in support of the American Red Cross mission. Team Red Cross prepares runners for success in the Boston Marathon and provides a rewarding charitable-giving experience. We offer training instructions, Red Cross activities, fundraising website and guidance, and a team of people who are passionate about running and the Red Cross!
All funds raised by Team Red Cross benefit American Red Cross programs and services throughout eastern Massachusetts.
Each runner is required to raise a minimum of $4,000 to support the American Red Cross (per B.A.A. Charity Program rules). As a charity team, a qualifying time is not required. Runners must acknowledge the ability to complete a marathon within six hours. Runners who fall short of the $4,000 fundraising minimum will be responsible to pay the balance.
Team Red Cross also accepts runners who have already secured a marathon bib through the Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) and would like to participate with a charity team. A fundraising minimum is required (contact the American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts for details).
