Help your club AND join us for a food/drink get together before/after?
Sounds good? Read on...
If you remember, last year we volunteered at a couple of races, and earned some much needed funds towards our track development. We are very lucky to get this opportunity again this year, where we can earn 900 euro, but only if we can fill the spots! The two runs are:
- Ray's Half Million Half Marathon for the LauraLynn Children's Hospice (Good Friday 18th April, 7:45am start, in Phoenix Park for 3 hours)
- Samsung Night Run (Sunday 27th April, 7:45pm start, in the city, for approximately 2 hours)
AND we thought, why not organise a Club Social ahead of the Samsung Run on the evening of the race – an early bird meal in Ely, Grand Canal Square at roughly 5:30pm. (We'll confirm price soon). All are welcome to come, its a chance for us to socialise post 4 Mile, post Rotterdam Marathon, post C25K completion etc.
How do you volunteer?
- Fill in your name on the volunteer list we have on the clubhouse door, by next Tuesday 15th at the latest!
- Or comment on our post on Facebook that you would like to volunteer.
Anyone can volunteer, runners, parents, friends, family etc. So join us for the Samsung Run and Ely Restaurant, or Ray's Half Million Half Marathon for the LauraLynn Children's Hospice (a very good cause). Hopefully you can join us for both. It's a great way to get to know other people in the club :)
We are looking for Senior/Fit4Life athletes or parents who would be interested in getting involved wit hJuvenile training. We have a large number of juveniles and it would enhance the training sessions if there was more adult help available. Training takes place Mon & Wed 7-8pm. Are you free? Only one hour per week!!!
If you have a skill, trade or expertise in a particular area e.g. painting, carpentry, catering, first aid etc. that you would be prepared to offer the club on accosions, we would be happy to add your name to our database. We are all volunteers and the more help we have the better the club will be. Please email Theresa at firstname.lastname@example.org
