KY DERBY MINI MARATHON WATER STOP - On April 27th UAW 862 will be volunteering for the KY Derby Festival Mini Marathon Water Stop. It is located at 4th and Kentucky. We need 50+ people to cover the area. As in the past breakfast will be cooked for all of the volunteers by the Recreation Committee.

Volunteers will be needed to set up the tables, and pour water and Powerade into cups. Also volunteers will be needed to clean up the area once all runners have passed our water stop. Wear clothing and shoes that you don't mind getting wet (from cups dropped). The race goes off rain or shine. If you already have a red UAW volunteer t-shirt, please wear it. It is a great opportunity for students who need community service hours for school. If you would like to volunteer please contact at either hall to sign up.
