We need help one last time this season for our biggest and longest training yet.
If you're not training right now come on out and support your fellow TEAM mates.
If you are training, wouldn't you love to have your family and friends out there supporting you?
Do you know any kids who need community service hours?
We need help to support our Team in Training Athletes training for the Chicago and Nike Marathons! Helping them helps to save lives as they are raising funds to find a cure!
We are looking for volunteers to man our waterstops for our longest trainings of the fall marathon season, not only to pass out water and gatorade but to cheer our participants on and make these trainings extra fun and special and to show everyone on these paths training that day that TEAM in TRAINING Rocks!
When and Where: Saturday, September 19 Chicago Lakefront
Specific waterstops will be assigned when you sign up!
Who: Anyone who would like to come out and support the TEAM!
*We will sign letters for anyone who uses this opportunity to get
community for service hours.
*If you are training these days this is a great way for your friends and
family to show their support for YOU!
Time: Training starts at 7:00 am. Not everyone will
have to begin at 7:00 am and no one will have to stay the entire
training unless they want to. Shifts will be assigned when you sign
What do volunteers have to bring and what do they have to do?
We will provide coolers with water and gatorade, cups and sports nutrition (power gels and bars). We will also provide directions to water stop locations.
Volunteers need to bring their enthusiasm and support and anything else they would like to bring to support our athletes (snacks, fruit, signs, cowbells). They will pass out water and gatorade to our athletes and cheer them on. They can set up whatever kind of fun cheer station they want!
