Run for the Red!

Dust off your running shoes and run for the red! Run, walk, ski, snowshoe, or even skip your way to 3.1 miles. Log your miles between February 15th and March 15th and take a selfie of your accomplishment. Hashtag #Run4Red #NMiRedCross and tag @ American Red Cross on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. Not only will you get bragging rights that you completed 3.1 miles, but all registered participants will be mailed a commemorative 2021 “Run for the Red” t-shirt.

Registering for the event will support the Northern MI Red Cross Chapter to help “prevent and alleviate human suffering” by mobilizing volunteers in the face of emergencies. The goal for this event is $30,000 which will go a long way in furthering the mission of the Red Cross. So far $6,005 has been raised, which is a great accomplishment! But we can use even more help from people just like you, every donor dollar helps! Not a runner? That’s ok! You can donate to this fundraiser without leaving the comfort of your living room couch. Visit, and click “Donate to This Event”.

When you register, you can do so as an individual, or as a team. So gather up your friends and get running. You can also support your friends and family who are already signed up by donating to their “run”. So, whether you’re supporting from the side lines or out there putting the miles in, you can help support the Red Cross mission today!
