On August 7, 1987, a young lady wearing a red dress emerged from an airplane in southern California to visit an old friend. Her friend introduced her to a zany running group called the “Hash House Harriers.” One member, noting her gender and attire, suggested she “just wait in the truck” until after the run. With that goading, she ran into history sporting her red dress and heels.

The following year, 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 wearing red dresses participated in a spectacle widely covered by California media. Addressing the crowd, The Lady In Red suggested that Hash House Harriers hold the Red Dress Run annually as an occasion to raise funds for local charities.

The tradition of the Hash House Harriers Red Dress Run quickly spread to every corner of the globe, and over the years, the Red Dress Run has raised millions of dollars for a wide variety of local charities. 

Donna Rhinehart, the Lady in Red, passed away in April 2013 in Phoenix. She made a huge impact on hashing through her campaign to make red dress runs the signature fund-raising event of the Hash House Harriers.

 

 

 

This year, BJHH will support the Pediatric Palliative Care Special Fund of the New Sunshine Charity Foundation, which was founded in 2014 to alleviate the suffering of children with blood tumors and their parents. 

This Foundation focuses its efforts on pain control, counseling, and life skills for ill children, as well as hospice care for children with terminal conditions.

Its Children’s Relief Activity Center opened in Beijing in 2015, with a sub-center opening in Zhengzhou in May 2021. They organize activities for children in long-term treatment, as well as information and counseling services for parents. The Beijing center has organized more than 1000 activities, with more than 7000 children and parents participating in the activities.

Daisy Home opened in 2017. It is the only family-type hospice care facility for children in China. As at September 2021, Daisy home had taken care of 105 families of children dying from cancer.
