Don't feel like running you say? Fear not. There are many other ways to participate; we still have some needs as follows:
- You can cheer on participants along the route or at one of the water stations along the route.
- You can volunteer to assist with setup or breakdown of route signs and/or water stations.
- You or a organization you belong to can volunteer to provide materials (tables, water coolers, cups, trash can, etc) for water stations or healthy snacks for participants.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.
The start/finish of both events will be at the Heights Line demonstration on National Street.
