LA Marathon (March 21, 2010)

Many of our volunteers agreed to participate in the LA Marathon, showing up for a 6AM briefing on a cool Sunday morning in Santa Monica.¬†They were asked to take on the essential role of “hot walkers,” which meant that, as the runners crossed the finish line,¬†they must ensure that they “keep the tired runners moving.” Sure enough, as one female runner crossed the line, she stumbled a bit and one of our own “hot walkers” was quickly there to assist with a shoulder to lean on until the runner got her bearings back. The LA Marathon is a huge event and our unit is proud to have filled such an essential role to help ensure its success!
