The American Red Cross Greater New York Region is Proud to Once Again Participate in the TCS New York City Marathon!
Down the street, across the country and around the world – with compassion and care, the American Red Cross and our dedicated volunteers provide shelter, food and emotional support to those affected by disaster. What’s more, as the nation’s largest supplier of donated blood, and provider of lifesaving CPR and first aid training classes, the Red Cross is as focused on preparing the public for emergencies as we are at providing relief following a disaster.
We invite you to join us in our lifesaving mission by participating as a runner with Team Red Cross
The TCS New York City Marathon holds a special significance to Team Red Cross; both have come to exemplify the strength and resiliency our community shows in the face of disaster. The Greater New York Red Cross Region responds to an average of seven disasters a day in our area. Our Red Cross provides immediate relief to our neighbors in their time of greatest need—but we can’t do it without your help. By joining Team Red Cross, you will be supporting disaster relief and recovery efforts, as well as Red Cross services, both nationally and internationally.
