Greetings Everyone!

Thank you again to all of the people who have volunteered over the
last several years to help with this great event!  We are getting
bigger and bigger each year.

Last year, the run we raised over $206,000 putting us well past the $2
million dollars since the run was started in New York. We also had
2,600 participants, which is the biggest group to date.

I have attached a report by Dr. Renier Brentjens to the Terry Fox
Foundation Research Progress Report regarding the research the Terry
Fox NYC run supports. Over the years of funding support from the Terry
Fox Foundation, Dr. Brentjens has expanded this research program from
the pre-clinical setting to a series of currently ongoing clinical
trials.
We are just over a month away from the race and Ken, Jeff and myself
are finishing up a few of the last minute race details.
If you would like to volunteer for this great event - (We only need
you for a couple of hours and you can still participate in the run) -
please send an email to
[address removed]<mailto:[­address removed]>, Subject:
2012 NYC Terry Fox Run, along with your name, address, phone number
and email address and preferred duty. You can call also call me at
(914) 310-7327. I have attached a copy of the run route and set-up
area for your reference.

Duties include:
1) Registering of runners (both participants who are pre-registered
and need to register)
2) Handing out T-shirts
3) Marshaling
4) General Information
5) Finish Line
6) Security/Baggage

The bulk of the volunteers are really needed to help with the large
influx of people registering at the start of the race, usually from
about 8:30AM to 9:20 AM. We need about 12 people to help with the
registering and handing out of T-shirts.  If you are planning on
participating in the race, this is the perfect place to help
volunteer. We also need to help from about eight (8) people with our
baggage area.

We need more people to help with marshaling along the course (bring
your cell phone, iPhone, Blackberry Droid or other smartphone to stay
in contact with the start/finish area and for emergency purposes) and
to help with directing people to the registration area and answering
general information questions before the run starts.

Thank-you so much to everyone who plans on volunteering and to
everyone who has volunteered over the years. We cannot put on this
event without you.

If you have any questions, please call me directly at (914) 310-7327.
I look forward to seeing you at the run.
