Walk, run, volunteer or donate blood to help save lives!

The Run for Blood quarter marathon & 5K and community blood drive will be held on July 28, 2012. The run will be chip timed on the road around Lake Calhoun.

Help make the Red Cross Run for Blood a success. Individuals can walk or run and raise pledges. Please invite friends, co-workers, classmates, neighbors and community members to participate with you! Businesses, organizations, and groups can form their own teams of walkers and runners to show their support to the Red Cross and to raise awareness about the need for lifesaving blood and to help us reach our goal of funding a new bloodmobile.

There will be food, entertainment and other fun activities for all to enjoy!
