Ready for the marathon? Go Team Red Cross!


That’s Nicole Marcotte on the left and Jill Roberts on the right, two staffers at the American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts with Team Red Cross. They’ve just finished the 5K that’s the warm-up to tomorrow’s big event.

Marcotte is the manager for Team Red Cross, the crew of 39 runners raising more than $100,000 for the programs and services the Red Cross provides in Eastern Massachusetts by running the B.A.A. Boston Marathon.

Also along tomorrow’s route are volunteers manning 26 first aid stations for the thousands running tomorrow. If you see a Red Crosser, give them a high-five! OK, not the ones wearing sterile gloves at the first aid stations. You can just give them a thumbs up.
