Glass City Marathon Water Stop
Submitted by Lori Edgeworth
Faculty and Staff: Mark your calendar now to volunteer at the Mercy Health Glass City Marathon, Sunday, April 23, 2023. Mercy College will again sponsor the Water stop in Wildwood Park that receives the marathon runners twice during their 26-mile event. We will be handing out water, energy packets, and other supplies along with cheering on the runners. Each volunteer will receive a t-shirt for their service. Volunteers are needed from 7 a.m. until approximately 12:30 p.m. We close the stop when the last official runner has passed for the second time. Please feel free to bring your family members and friends. I will need a total of 10 – 15 volunteers for the stop. It is really a fun way to spend a Sunday morning! The runners so appreciate the volunteers.
I will send out the link to sign up to volunteer in the next couple of weeks through this newsletter.
