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!
