I received the following e-mail, can anyone help?

"I am with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation located here in Tampa, FL. Cystic Fibrosis is a fatal childhood disease affecting thousands of children in our community.

On Sunday, October 6th we are having a cycling event that begins and ends in Fort Desoto park. We are expecting 300 riders at the event! We DESPERATELY need volunteers to help at rest stop/water stations, the cheering section, serving lunch and clean-up. We have searched and searched for volunteers and are still coming up short!"

How we will LEND A HAND

Please find volunteer check-in when you arrive and please note that you're with Lend a Hand. Hours range from 5:00a.m. to 1:00p.m depending on what job you sign up for.

Bring a picnic lunch and we can sit on the beach after the event and have lunch, and enjoy the beautiful weather (hopefully)!


· 6:00 a.m. to 10:30a.m. We need four groups of 3-10 to man rest stops. This involves handing out water and refreshments and cheering the cyclists on. If you would like to create a theme for the rest stop and make it fun and unique, we would be thrilled! **NEEDED**

· 9:45a.m. to 12:30p.m. We need two groups of 3-10 to man rest stops. This involves handing out water and refreshments and cheering the cyclists on. If you would like to create a theme for the rest stop and make it fun and unique, we would be thrilled!

Join us and open your heart to LEND A HAND!

Please consider this seriously before you RSVP, it is very important that we have an accurate count a couple of days in advance to provide to the organization. Last-minute drop-outs are difficult to replace and reflect badly on our organization.
