AID STATIONS!! VOLUNTEERS NEEDED JULY 28, AUG 11, SEP 8

If you are joining the free runs, you are asked to volunteer for one aid station during the summer. You have 3 chances left to fulfill this obligation for free runs. Sign by clicking https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0848a5a72da2fc1-thank1 . We provide the supplies and you, runners, provide the volunteers and some snacks. Before your turn, we email you with details. When you show up, we give you jugs of water, already diluted sports drink, cups, pitchers, garbage bags and first aid supplies. Some volunteers have been known to provide special treats such as jelly beans, gummy bears, pretzels or chips. You can ask a friend or family to help on your behalf as well. We are not asking you to do something the volunteer coaches and group leaders don't do every single week - please help us help the runners.
