Crew Member for the Race Across USA!
We need a someone who has a sense of adventure as we Race Across the USA! Our cause is childhood obesity. Duties including driving runners and supporting runners as they run across the country. This unprecedented opportunity starts on January 15 and ends on June 3, 2015. We will start in Huntington Beach, CA and meander through the back roads and highways all the way to Washington DC. The full route includes: CA, AZ, NM, TX, LA, AR, MS, AL, GA, SC, NC, VA, MD. Rest days have been added so that runners can visit schools along the way. Ten athletes will run the entire course. Up to 20 others may sign up to run a state. On Day 139, the runners will also stop at the White House in Washington D.C. to show our appreciation for the First Lady’s support of this important issue. The Race Directors just drove the route backwards in April/May. Along the way, they met local officials, members of the press and visited with schools. They received a warm welcome from everyone including the Mayor of Raleigh, NC, the Mayor of Greenwood, MC, the Mayor’s office in Ft. Worth, TX, the Mayor Pro-Tem of Roswell, NM as well as the mayor in Payson, AZ. Surprisingly, they were interviewed twice by members of the local press in Sanford, NC and Roswell, NM. Both interviews made it in the newspaper. In fact, the story in New Mexico made the front page! Try to imagine what a splash this event will make when up to 30 runners run through their town!!
