KC Marathon – Volunteer For Leukemia

Posted by TheJOTUS on July 23, 2008

I have been negligent in posting the information on the KC Marathon for Leukemia.  Very negligent actually.  But I am posting now, so all is good!!

I am volunteering along with Mrs. Jotus and thought those of you in the Kansas City area could rally in support of the LLS (Leukemia & Lymphoma Society).  A friend of mine volunteered last year and she said it was gravy (easy for those in Rio Linda) You just need to show up, stand in your designated spot and cheer on the runners.  Simple, right?  The marathon is Saturday October 18.  Oh, and free BBQ!!!

Here is the tid-bit from the Mid-America Chapter.  The volunteer form is attached below:

Hello Everyone, 

The Kansas City Marathon will be here before we know it. I noticed that all of you volunteered at the event last year and I wanted to know if you were interested in volunteering again. Perks for volunteering include Jack Stack BBQ, getting a race day shirt, giveaways, and most importantly…helping people with Leukemia!! Your time spent volunteering directly helps people with blood cancer. A certain amount of money will be donated to these people and to research based on how many volunteers help out. All you need to do is register for the event and show up to help on the 18th of October. I have included the registration form for you to print out, fill out, and either mail or fax back to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We will register you and then contact you with more info in September based on the position you will be working. 

Thanks for helping last year,

Hope you can help again this year,
