Heads Up Loyal Red Cross Event Aficionados! There is a fantastic event that demands your presence!
Several hundred people will step up and step out on April 21, 2012 – this Saturday — for the American Red Cross Southeastern Pennsylvania (SEPA) Chapter’s 10th Annual Red Cross Walk and Run to Save Lives. The Walk and Run helps to raise funds for Red Cross House and local families left homeless by a fire, flood, or other disaster.
The 5K Walk and Run will begin in front of Memorial Hall in Fairmount Park and wind through the scenic park, taking walkers past the Japanese Tea Garden and the Horticulture Center. Individuals, businesses, organizations, groups are very welcome! More importantly, the event is dog friendly, so participants are welcome to bring their dogs. There’s even a special dog tent with giveaways for the dozens of pooches that take part.
Registration begins at 7 a.m., warm-up at 8 a.m., and the Walk/Run starts at 8:30 a.m. Participants should register in advance online at http://www.redcrosswalkandrun.org. The web site features a “My Walk/Run Site,” Here, participants can set up a personalized page to support the Red Cross, find a group to join and learn more about each registered team. Donations to the Walk and Run are accepted until April 30th.
Proceeds from the Walk and Run benefit local disaster relief and Red Cross House, SEPA Chapter’s one-of-a-kind short term residence for disaster victims.
