Fells Point Runners present TSUNAMI SURVIVORS RUN - BALTIMORE
- (Note: This idea started last week, but was moved back a week to give the the running community more time to publicize it.)
TSUNAMI SURVIVORS RUN - BALTIMORE
On Sunday January 9th, at 9:30am we will be running 4 - 10 miles around the Inner Harbor in Baltimore to raise money for Survivors of the Tsunami. The Mid-Maryland Chapter of the Red Cross is supporting us.
The Baltimore/Mid-Maryland area has a vast running community. We want to maximize this network to raise as much money as possible for the devastating situation in South-East Asia, South Asia & North East Africa.
We urge all local runners to participate and send this information to friends, family, and acquaintances so they can donate for you - or who also might be interested in running/walking.
Please feel free to forward this information sheet to any local businesses you think might also be interested in supporting us or donating. If you cannot run, please forward this to people you think might be interested to participate/donate.
If you are not running, and would like to support us on Sunday, please come along! Your help would be very welcome.
Please send donations (any amount is great no matter how small or large) directly to the Mid-Maryland Chapter of the Red Cross, either online, by phone or mail (see below). Make sure that you specify the donations are to go to the "Tsunami Survivors Run" (either in the instructions section of the online form, or notes parts of check). - This is so they can track how much has been donated for our run.
We will also have Red Cross canisters/tins for cash donations on the day.
