Wounded Warrior Race on June 9 – Volunteer or Sign up to Run!

Your SAME Fort Wort Post is sponsoring the Wounded Warrior Half Marathon & 10K on June 9, 2013!!  Details about the race can be found here: http://www.dallasathletesracing.com/races/wounded-warrior/

The race starts/ends in Williams Square, Las Colinas, Irving.  Between 3,000 – 4,000 runners are expected and about 40% of which will be military connected (current or past).  This sixth annual highly successful event boasts all branches of the military are involved (except for the Coast Guard…but hopefully that will change soon!).  The race benefits the Fisher House and the Wounded Warrior Project, both extremely worthy causes.  The Fort Worth Post is very excited to be involved in such an incredible event and we would LOVE your participation.  You can participate in several ways:

1. Volunteer to help run our water aid station along the course.  Your involvement will include cheering on the runners and throwing handing water to them.  (4-5 volunteers needed)

2. Volunteer to staff our tent.  We will have a tent at the end of the race where will introduce SAME and our Post to the crowd and give out flyers about the organization. (3-4 volunteers)

3. Donate some of your company’s swag (and hand it out day-of the event).  Minimum of 300 units.  Instead of handing out SAME-focused giveaways (like water bottles or cozies or pens etc) we want our Sustaining Members to get involved.  So, if you have some company giveaways tucked in storage, take this opportunity to give your company some exposure!  (first come first served – limit of 6 companies, total of 9 volunteers – so if you are interested contact me ASAP)

4. Cheer on some of your SAME Fort Worth runners. There will be food, drink, and live music so come out for a fun, family friendly event. (unlimited!!)

Because the event is in June and we live in Texas, the half marathon race will start early at 6:45AM.  Race set up begins at 5:45.  If you would like to volunteer please plan on being at the event by 6:15AM.  And if you do want to volunteer, make sure you contact Sarah Cole so you’ll be kept advised : scole [at] obrieneng.com
