Hello everyone, we have a volunteer opportunity available this Sunday to help us out at the Long Beach City Marathon: we need people to give water to the runners at our Mile 7.5 water station. Last year’s event raised 29 people off the ground and into a wheelchair–we want this year to be even more successful but we can’t do it without your help.
It takes about 20 people to run the water station smoothly and we want you to be one of them! Here are the details:
What: Staff the water station (pass out water, cheer on runners, etc). Please be prepared for a physically active volunteering experience – you will be standing for several hours, and may be asked to lift or move objects up to 30 lbs.
When: This Sunday, October 7, from 5AM-Noon
Where: Mile 7.5 along the route: in the beach parking lot at the corner of Junipero Ave & E. Ocean Blvd near downtown Long Beach
We need to know by 3PM TODAY if you can help out–if you’re available please email Ariel at arigney[at]freewheelchairmission[dot]org and let her know!
Thanks, you’re awesome!
