Last Sunday Charlie Ban, Patricks Murphy and Huge (and sometimes a bare chested Matt Ernst) and I, handed out cold water and Gatorade at Fletcher's boat house to runners using the Towpath/CCT. While they downed their drinks we pitched the FD8K and collected email addresses. 95% of those who stopped and drank expressed interest in the race or at least provided us their email. Needless to say, this was very successful. It was also fun and good to "give back" to those using the trail. Listening to Charlie Ban's commentary was enough payback for me.
This coming Saturday we are going to do the same thing and I need volunteers. This time we are going to have two groups; one will again meet at Fletcher's and the other will set up at/near the Watergate. I will head up the Fletcher's stop, but I need at least 3 volunteers to come and help me collect Gatorade powder, water and ice and then sit with me for a few hours handing out the goods. I also need someone to head up the Watergate water stop, preferably someone who helped at Fletcher's on Sunday and that person will also need 3 volunteers to assist.
We also need two additional small pop-up tables (card tables) to put the drinks on (we have two already) at our second stop.
Finally, we need a couple of individuals to linger around the finish line of the Lawyers Have Heart 10k and hand out fliers. Is there someone who can spearhead this?
Depending on the weather, we can either run as a team AFTER we hand out water (circa 11am) or wait until the end of the day (which we did on Sunday).
Please post in comments if you're able to assist. We need your help!
