Support the Red Cross by volunteering or "Running for blood" in the Vampire 5K!

Hey everyone,
I am helping to put on a fun new themed 5K run in Dallas on 4.26 benefiting Red Cross blood donation centers and we need some help!
Below is information about our event and volunteering with us, send me an email if you are able to help out at: [masked]. Thank you!
- Lauren Jones

The Vampire 5K
Which side will you choose?
The run begins at dusk and ends under a full moon. Participants may register as either a Vampire or Citizen. Citizens in all white start in one location, Vampires in black in another. The paths converge at an unknown location and then the hunt is on! Vampires will try to "convert" citizens by pulling both white garlic flags they will be carrying while running through fog and red powder zones. Participants will then “celebrate eternity” in the post-run Red Dusk after-party with music, red colored beverages, fun awards, and make-up artists on-hand ready to “transform” any willing citizens into new Vampires. The V5K benefits Red Cross blood donation services and local blood banks. Register on a team of 4 or more and save $5 each on entry.
Coming to Dallas on 4.26. REGISTER NOW with the code RUN4BLOOD and save $15 off registration.

Come to our pre-run packet pick-up and donate blood and receive $25 off registration!!


Volunteering at V5K will be an experience like no other! When else do you get to watch people dressed up as Vampires chase people around while throwing red powder at them?
Below is all the info you need to know about volunteering for the V5K. If you are interested and available, please send us an email with the name or names of those interested, email addresses and shifts you are interested in to: [masked]
If you are a group, please send us approximately how many people you will be bringing to help out.
Thank you!
