Marathon Kids Opening Ceremony

Come out and help support in helping to combat childhood obesity and help build a healthier lifestyle for elementary school kids and their families.  Over a 6 month period they have run the distance of a marathon (26.2 miles).  We will be volunteering on the field and in the stands doing any of following:  passing out gifts/water/other goodies to the kids, being ushers, manning the start/finish line, cheering for the kids as they run.

There will be some entertainment put on by the kids before the running starts.  I will be one of the photographers for the event and will try to get some pictures of the group at the event.

Event duration:  8AM - 1PM

When you RSVP, you will be prompted to supply your Full name and e-mail address.  This information is required to get you registered as part of the group.  If you are bringing a friend, please send me their names and e-mails as well so they can be assigned a volunteer position.

I am setting the deadline to RSVP for Oct 4th, so I can submit our roster.  If you want to be added after this date, please send me a private message and I will work with MarathonKids to get you added to the roster.

For anyone interested, we we can find a place to eat after the event is over.

    I'm a photographer, so I have my camera and blue camera bag. Say hi if you see me.

      It's probably a little late to reply but this event could always use more people to cheer the kids on. Just show up whenever you can and leave whenever you need to, it's all good :)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
