Red Cross Run for “RED”iness 2012 a Success!

 

American Red Cross; Southern Missouri Region 6/20/12

 

 

The American Red Cross in Southern Missouri is proud to announce the success of our 3rd Annual

5k Walk/Run to support Disaster Services to the communities we serve. Your commitment to your community brought in almost $10,000 for disaster relief.

 

We are thankful for the dedication of over 100 runners who came from near and far to help raise the money needed to ensure the Red Cross is able to respond to those affected by very personal disasters.  In service to 40 counties in Southern Missouri, your Red Cross responds to approximately 2 home fires every day. In the past 3 days alone, we have provided emergency assistance to over 30 individuals who lost everything due to a fire in their home or apartment.

 

Together we are Neighbors helping Neighbors. We thank you for being active in your support of each other and YOUR America Red Cross!
