Tar Heel 10 Miler road race

Dear Scouts, Parents and Leaders,

Our troop has been asked to help out as race water-stop helpers for the Tar Heel 10 Miler road race on Saturday morning, April 26. We will hand out water to runners at a stop in front of St. Thomas More Church. They have asked us to be there at 6:30 am (yes, that’s correct) and say until 10 am.



All the proceeds go to two great local causes that make a positive impact on thousands of people- the UNC Lineberger Cancer Center and the Chapel Hill-Carrboro YMCA.



NOTE: These hours count toward CHCCS service learning hours as well as troop hours for the President’s Volunteer Service Award.



EVEN BETTER NOTE: The first five people who volunteer and show up by 6:30 receive a free race t shirt. Quick Color Solutions will also provide BOJANGLES biscuits for our volunteers before the race (reserve your favorite with me when you RSVP) as well as a post-race meal at Suttons Drugstore when we’re done. You can then go home and nap that afternoon with a full belly. J



Volunteers can park at STM Church. If needed, I can give anyone a ride home who might need it. I will also



This is not a mandatory attendance event, but I guarantee you our troop will be helping out a great cause, we’ll have some fun together cheering on our favorite participating runners, and did I say “eating some irresistibly good food too?” BO TIME starts at 6:30 am. Yours will be waiting…



Email me back if you or your scout can help out. I know it’s early in the morning, but it’s a great cause.



Sincerely yours,



Glenn

I do not have an address nor do I have a GPS coordinate to provide you but here are directions from SV community Park to the junction of 15-501 and Ashemont Road.  I would be cautious using your GPS to get to Army Road,  I looked up this area on Google maps and Army Road looks like it is off to the left of 15-501, not to the right but the above directions have been confirmed.
