You need to make sure to adorn your finest red dress, and come out to support this year's 2015 RDR charity. On August 7, 1987, a young lady wearing a red dress emerged from an airplane that had landed in southern California to visit a friend from her high school years. Shortly thereafter, she found herself transported to Long Beach, where her friend intended to introduce her to a zany running group called the “Hash House Harriers.” One member, noting her gender and attire, urged that she “just wait in the truck” until her host returned. With that goading, she ran into history sporting her red dress and heels. Gathering for the first Red Dress Run in San Diego, 1988, the following year (August 12, 1988), to commemorate the event, the San Diego Hash House Harriers sent “The Lady In Red” an airline ticket to attend the inaugural Red Dress Run. Hundreds of male and female hashers adorned themselves in red dresses for a spectacle widely covered by California newspapers and TV news. In addressing the crowd, The Lady In Red suggested that Hash House Harriers hold the Red Dress Run annually as an occasion to be used to raise funds for local charities. For more information about Red Dress Runs, the Lady in Red, and to look for upcumming RDR events be sure to check www.reddressruns.org This year's local charity is the Downtown Emergency Service Center (www.desc.org). DESC started in 1979 as an emergency shelter and a place for vulnerable adults living with behavioral health disorders to come in out of the cold at night. Today the mission is not to merely offer shelter, but to end the homelessness of our communities' most vulnerable people.
