My friend Elyse, who owns Venus a Fitness Studio for Her in Montgomery asked me to post this call for volunteers. Sounds like a really great event for an even better cause. Hope you can help! Please see below for more information:

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!!!

 

For Fit to Fight Ovarian Cancer to create awareness about Ovarian Cancer (www.fittofightoc.com)

Sunday July 18, 2010

At  Mason Community Center and Corwin Nixon Park. 

The event features sprint triathlon, duathlon and 5K events for women, men and kids.

 

RESPONSE NEEDED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it   or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

We really need LOTS of volunteers for this event.  It is a great opportunity to have fun, see a triathlon/duathlon in action, and help with a very important cause.  Please distribute this to any friends, family or groups that would be interested in helping or need community service hours, like swim teams, track/cross country teams, boy scout/girl scout troops, high school students, churches, synagogues, football/soccer teams, etc.  Anyone you can think of. 

 

We need volunteers for the following jobs:

·       giving out medals,

·       time chip retrieval,

·       water bottle distribution, and directing to post race food, massage and vendor booths  (7-10 people needed),

·       Registration/Packet Pick UP the morning of the race (10-15 people needed),

·       Hydration stations at transition and in the middle of the run (5-8 people needed for each station=10-16 total),

·       helping athletes transition from water to transition zone, in and out of transition zone, on the bike and run courses to direct athletes (20-30 people needed),

·       Post Race food Set up and distribution (5-7 people needed),

·        Registration/Packet Pick up on Saturday July 10 3-7 pm at Fleet Feet Sports at the corner of Cooper and Kenwood Roads in Blue Ash, and Thursday, 7/15 and Friday 7/16 from 4-7 pm and Saturday 7/17 9-12 at Venus--A Fitness Studio for Her in Montgomery (9401 Montgomery Road, 45242)—note new location and times

·       And stuffing bags

 

On the sign up sheet there are times specified for the above jobs.  The first race starts at 7:30 AM.  Athletes usually arrive about 1 hour before the race due to the amount of set up they require.  Therefore promptness is really important.  Because there are 3 separate start times (the kids don’t start until 11), volunteers can be staggered throughout the morning, however we need the numbers above for the adult races (until about 11:00).  Then another smaller crew can come in to refresh the group.  Last year people were really burned out by the time the Kid’s event came around, so having fresh bodies is really important. 

 

This event is fast approaching so time is of the essence.  Please distribute this to as many people as you can or even to your company.  They can get great exposure!!  Have them contact me as soon as possible if they need more information. I need a final head count by July 1st!! If you want to represent an organization you can wear shirts representing your group while volunteering.  We will try to group you together.  WE WILL PROVIDE FREE SHIRTS TO ALL VOLUNTEERS!

 

Thank you for your efforts to provide volunteers.  This is a wonderful opportunity to provide community service and getting great exposure for your organization! 

 

Be well and Healthy Regards,
