Run. Walk. Jog. Hop. Skip. Breakdance. Whatever you do in the Fifth Third River Bank Run this year, you can do it for the Red Cross!
The American Red Cross of Greater Grand Rapids has been selected as a Charity Partner for the 2010 Fifth Third River Bank Run, held this year on May 8! As a Charity Partner, the Red Cross is spreading the word about our organization to River Bank Run participants and offer them the chance to run or walk to benefit the Red Cross. You can get involved in any of the following ways:
- Sign up as a pledge runner!
- Form a corporate team!
- Join us as a volunteer during Race Week, helping at the Junior Race and congratulating participants at the finish line on Race Day downtown!
We are also teaming up with Road Warrior Walter Catton, whose inspirational story of overcoming the odds makes him an outstanding Red Cross ambassador. Look for Walter's story soon on the Rapidian!

The mission of the American Red Cross is to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.
