February is mixed bag of seasonal weather. Sometimes we have really cold and wet weather and others we have some beautiful sunny weather. The Donna Deegan Marathon for the fight against Breast Cancer is an annual event each February that draws thousands and thousands of people participating in the run, volunteers and spectators. It is a well-run event but like all well attended events it requires lots of volunteers and patience from all the participants. Don’t forget to take your time, plan to be at all the events early and of course, parking will always be an issue.
Become a Breast Cancer Marathon Race Crew Volunteer has all the information for becoming a volunteer and having a good time while helping a good cause. You will even get some great stuff for participating. It is a huge event with lots of people coming from all over the U.S. and some are even from other countries. The events start on Wednesday, February 8th to Sunday, February 12th. There are lots of events going on that needs volunteers not just for the race day on Saturday.

Volunteers in Medicine-Jacksonville is looking for team captains for the 2010 Human Race 5K on October 9, 2010. The race also includes a 1-mile fun run option.
Team captains will be responsible for recruiting co-workers and friends to participate in the race and fundraise. We’d like to see each participant commit to raising $50, which would go directly to support VIM-Jax.
Last year’s race raised $14,000 for VIM-Jax and we’d like to at least double that this year.
Contact me if you would like to lead the effort to recruit a team.
