From Diabetes Wellness Director Alphie Rodriguez:
The YWCA needs volunteers to serve as race marshals for the Asheville Citizen-Times Half Marathon & 5K, on Saturday, September 17.
Half of the proceeds of the race support our Kids in Motion program, which works to increase physical activity and promote healthier lifestyles for kids in our childcare and after-school programs.
You will be a race marshal helping direct runners around the course as well as control and warn traffic to yield to the runners. The atmosphere is fun and supportive, and of course you get a colorful race day volunteer T-shirt to wear. This is an early morning race with volunteer spots beginning at 7AM – so make sure to have the coffee ready. There are several opportunities available – just email or call and I can help find the best location for you!
Volunteering for a race provides an experience you will remember for years to come. The YWCA and all the runners are grateful for your help.
