This is an archived copy of the Long Beach Cares ( website created by Lorenzo Gigliotti in Sept. 2005. Originally designed to raise awareness of the devastation of Hurricane Katrina and aggregate the diverse fundraising and special events which took place in Long Beach California to aid victims of Katrina, it also became the official historical chronicle for the Long Beach Cares - Long Beach, CA Helping Long Beach, MS program established by the City of Long Beach, California (under the direction of Lindsay Shields) to help begin the rebuilding effort of Long Beach, Mississippi. This program ended in Sept. 2006 but to find out more about the continuing needs of Long Beach, MS visit:

Inside Texas Running
T-shirts and other Clothing

Inside Texas Running Thousands of people in the Louisiana, Mississippi, and surrounding areas were flooded out of their homes by Hurricane Katrina, many of them losing everything - home, cars, clothes, etc. Some 25,000 people are being bussed from New Orleans to Houston, where they will make the Houston Astrodome their home for the foreseeable future.

Inside Texas Running is calling on all runners, cyclists, swimmers, triathletes, or anyone else to lend a helping hand to those in need. We're calling upon all race directors to donate the leftover or unused T-shirts from their events. For those who have lost everything in the floods, a nice, dry T-shirt would be greatly appreciated, regardless if it was from an event they hadn't heard of or if the shirt isn't from this year's event.

But this call for help isn't limited to just event directors. Everyone has extra race T-shirts sitting in their closet - now is the time to lighten your laundry load and get them into the hands of people who could really use them.T-shirts (and other clothing) can be delivered or shipped (postage-paid, please) to the ITR offices at:
