2-Apr-19: 2019 Ion Bank Cheshire Road Races Support

posted Apr 2, 2019, 9:34 AM by Mark Nowicki

Dear Band Parents:


The 2019 Ion Bank Cheshire Road Races will be held on Sunday, April 28, 2019.


For the fourth year in a row, the CHS Band Parents’ Association will be partnering with the Ion Bank Cheshire Road Races foundation.  The foundation is in need of many community volunteers, for many reasons, but specifically for us to assist with road course traffic safety.  This is a very easy and fulfilling event whereby our parents are stationed in numerous places along the Half Marathon race route to encourage the runners as they pass, to make sure they run or turn in the correct direction along the route, to call for medical or other assistance if a runner is hurt or incapacitated, but most importantly, to direct community motorized road traffic so as to protect the competing runners.  This event is a very good way for our organization to give back to our Cheshire community.


You would be needed beginning about 7:30am for about 2 to 4 hours on Sunday morning.  No set-up, no break-down, no baking, no cooking… just people power… easier than anything we do for our own fundraisers throughout the year.  We would like to contribute at least 25 of our parents.  For our volunteerism, the BPA will receive a modest donation back from the Cheshire Road Races foundation.


Please click here to sign up!  If easier for you, simply email or text me to let me know you wish to volunteer.  Please provide me your preferred email address and your cellphone number so I can share that info with the road races foundation volunteer coordinator.


Important:  If you are willing and available, please do not delay signing up because the foundation needs to nail down their volunteer coverage as soon as possible to ensure they have what they need on race day in just four weeks.


Thank you!
