The Red Devils is a Maryland based non-profit offering support to breast cancer patients and their families. The Red Devils provide food, transportation and other support services to men and women who are in treatment for breast cancer.

Your invitation to bring hope to families living with breast cancer. SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES Sunday, June 8, 2014 at Goucher College

Last night was the first night that I actually laid my head on my pillow and slept. The reason I slept was because yesterday I was told that The Red Devils would pay my rent. When I first heard the news, my initial reaction was disbelief. Then I started to cry. When I was without rent or late, I did not see an end to that. You came to the rescue. Robyn Treatment is a long journey made up of many appointments and reliable transportation is essential. Over time my medical bills grew so I sold my possessions, including my car. My friends and neighbors volunteered to drive, but their offers faded as the months passed. Without your service, I could not have gotten to all of my appointments. Nancy Since 2002, The Red Devils has been making an immediate and profound impact on the lives of breast cancer families living in Maryland. By funding their transportation to treatment, family support needs, and medical services and treatment-related therapies, The Red Devils has removed the barriers to treatment for more than 4,000 women since our founding. Until there is a cure, breast cancer patients know they can rely on The Red Devils to bring them and their families hope. 2014 will be the 12th year for our 5K run and 1 mile walk to support Maryland breast cancer families. From its beginnings at a Howard County park with barely 50 participants to its current Goucher College home with more than 1,000 registrants and donors, Running with The Devils has become a Central Maryland tradition. Proceeds from Running with The Devils -- $125,000 -will improve the quality of life for more than 400 families in 2014.

Running with The Devils is a family-friendly event accessible to anyone who wants to spend three hours on a Sunday morning wearing horns and breaking a bit of a sweat! This is a 5K unlike any other not just because the participants are wearing disco sequined Horns of Hope, but because everyone who arrives on site is greeted by one or more of the members of the families who founded the organization and personally thanked for supporting our cause. Running with The Devils offers its participants and sponsors an intimacy of scale that cannot be found in marathons or festivals. That valued attribute, plus knowing where the money goes: TO MARYLAND FAMILIES LIVING WITH BREAST CANCER, and how those funds are spent: NINETY CENTS OF EVERY DOLLAR DIRECTLY BENEFITS A PATIENT, explains why so many people return every year and bring others to join them. On Sunday, June 8th, we anticipate between 1,000 and 1,200 people will earn their Horns of Hope! Each registrant receives a drawstring goodie bag, stuffed with souvenirs and treats. Survivors who join us for the morning receive a special gift honoring their journey. Our guests feast on a complimentary array of bagels, fruit and beverages before and after the race. At their leisure, they may enjoy the event Village where tented spaces host our BIG TENT RAFFLE, FUN & GAMES CORNER, MASSAGE THERAPY, PARTNER HOSPITALS, and OTHER VENDORS. The 5K runners respond to the starting horn at 8:30 that morning, followed by the 1 mile walkers. Runners wind their way through campus to the streets of Towson before making their way back to the Charm City Run finishing arch. Our walkers remain on campus. By 9:30, we are ready to award medals to our top finishers AND to those who accomplished fundraising, team building, and spirit milestones. In years past, Baltimore's mayor (whose mother is a breast cancer survivor), has joined us on stage to congratulate the finishers. We've also received proclamations from the County Executive and Congressional Delegates. Running with The Devils is an established platform with a solid track record of attendance, support, and impact on The Red Devils mission to improve the quality of life for breast cancer patients and their families.
