Good morning Fleet Feet Meet-up group! I wanted to send a personal note to all of you. We are presenting our signature race - the Fleet Feet 15K Run into Buffalo on Monday 9/2 at 8 am at Canalside in downtown. This event is one of the most important things that we do. Race proceeds benefit our not for profit - SOS (Shoes on Students) which provides new training shoes to high school runners of need. In the past 7 years, we have provided over 1,700 pairs of shoes to young runners in communities across WNY influencing their lives in a positive direction.
This year we have a need for race volunteers - some larger groups who have assisted with traffic control have not stepped up this year. We work with the City of Buffalo to completely close off the race route but we still require volunteers at each corner to control the traffic cones barricading the intersections. If you are not running the race and would like to assist with traffic control, please let me know directly. Our Volunteer Coordinator will then provide you with specifics for race day, It is @ a 3 hour commitment and all race volunteers receive a Race Staff t-shirt and post race food and drink from Fat Bobs. In addition, we will be doing a raffle from all our volunteers to win one of four $25 Fleet Feet gift cards.
If you are interested in helping, please let me know as soon as possible
Thanks so much !!! Alice
