A time to unite

Watching runners unite in the face of tragedy today at the Boston Marathon is a powerful thing. As you look for ways to help, keep a watch on the Red Cross for ways you can make a difference. Please make yourself aware of the Red Cross’ fundraising rules if you’re participating in or planning a virtual event.

On Tuesday and throughout the week, let’s show the world how strong the running community is. Now is the time to unite and stand as one.

When you head out for a run, wear a race shirt. If you can dress casually to work or have the day off, wear a race shirt.

If you don’t have a race shirt or if you have to dress up for work, show your unity with the Boston Marathon colors of blue and yellow.

Unite and spread the word by sharing our Facebook post, retweeting the tweet below, sharing our Google+ post, or sharing a link to this blog post.
