3-Apr-18: VOLUNTEER FOR : 2018 Ion Bank Cheshire Road Races : Sunday, April 29, 2018

Dear BPA Parents:


The 2018 Ion Bank Cheshire Road Races will be held on Sunday, April 29, 2018.


The Band Parents’ Association is partnering again this year with the Ion Bank Cheshire Road Races foundation.  This will be our third year participating.  The organizers of this community event are in need of many 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 any regular 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 from about 7:30am for 2 to 4 hours on Sunday morning depending on where you get stationed along the route.  No set-up, no break-down, no baking, no cooking… just people power!  Please click here to sign up.  We would like to contribute a minimum of about 25 parents.


For our volunteerism, the BPA will receive a modest donation from the Cheshire Road Races foundation.  Your time commitment would be for no more than four hours of work on Sunday morning.  Easy, fun and fulfilling! 


Use the sign-up, or if easier for you, simply email me to let me know you wish to volunteer.  If you contact me by email, please provide me your preferred email address and your cellphone number so I can share with the road races foundation volunteer coordinator.


Thank you!
