Volunteers Needed

26 Aug

The 2010 Asheville Citizen Times Half Marathon and 5K Run and Walk is drawing large numbers again this year.  The YWCA is asking for volunteers to help make the event a success. We are recruiting volunteers to serve as Race Marshalls. Your role will help ensure the safety of the runners/walkers and to direct the participants to follow the designated course. The event takes place on the morning of Saturday, September 18th, and volunteers are needed to begin at 7:00 am.

Half of the proceeds of the event will go to support the YWCA’s work to address childhood obesity. We teach our young children the benefits of movement and healthy foods.  For older children and youth we use the funds provided for structured physical activity.

If you are willing and able, please contact Alphie Rodriguez at alphie.r@ywcaofasheville.org or 254-7206 EXT 212. Please include your cell phone number and shirt size, you get a free t-shirt! Feel free to pass this on to others.

Come out to help and cheer on the athletes!
