Chicago Marathon Beer Stop with the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation Marathon Team
Venue: LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon Mile 23.5
I hope you all had a great summer! As you are probably aware, the Chicago Marathon is coming up fast. And so is the debut of our own “Team CPD Memorial”, led by Captain Rhonda Anderson. Rhonda has been working very hard to make this Marathon voyage memorable, not only for the team members, but for the spectators along the course as well.
And to make this happen, we can use a hand in a couple of areas:
1. We have established a “Cheering Section” at Michigan Avenue and 32nd Street. This is located approximately 23.5 miles into the race. We need enthusiastic cheerleaders to throw all of their energy and encouragement into all of the marathon runners in the name of the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation – and particularly to the members of Team CPD Memorial – as they pass by…….
2. Charity Village (at the Marathon Finish Area): We need people to assist with the set-up and operation of the post-race party for Team CPD Memorial in the Marathon Charity Village. We will have food, drinks, music, and more. The party needs to be set-up as the marathon is in progress, and be ready for the runners as they finish. This will be one of the best post-race bashes in the Village – that’s for sure…..
Please write back and let us know if you are available, and where you would like to help. It will be an early morning, so get to bed early the night before. It will be fun!
Both spots will be handing out the CH3’s favorite beverage much like we did at the May CPD run to Remember event. So come on out and support the marathon and enjoy a little Gold and Cold refreshment.
Thank you and regards,
