VHC is putting together a team of people who will cheer for runners in the Mountains 2 Beach Marathon on Sunday, May 28th. As a part of the marathon, there is a charity cheering competition. The cheering team that gets the most votes as the loudest, most spirited and most memorable from the runners wins money for the charity of their choice. The grand prize (which we won last year) is $3K. This prize money will provide much-needed funding for the Ventura Hillside Conservancy’s environmental preservation and protection programs. We fully intend to retain our title as #1 cheerers!
We have a group of high school students from Ventura High School’s GWAT (Global Warming Action Team) cheering for the Conservancy but we need more people to help. The time commitment on Sunday, May 28th is: 6 AM – 12 Noon (or until the last runner passes our cheering station) and our cheering location is off Highway 33.
We are team #4. GWAT is decorating green t-shirts and making signs for the team to wear/use. We will also have hats, noise makers, costumes and music. This event is coming up very fast and is for a very good cause. If you can help, please RSVP and we will send you a map of the cheering location and a list of what to bring. Thanks!
