Steward and Recorders
urgently required for next Sunday's Women's Mini-Marathon
Event Funds Cork Athletic's Competitions and Other Athletics Support Activities
The Mini-marathon is a major fund-raiser for Cork Athletics, and
requires upward of 120 stewards and officials to organise safely.
The proceeds help Cork Athletics fund its competitions and
Championships, in addition it enables the Board to organise training,
in coaching, coach education, child protection and safety, along with
grants for related equipment. The Board also organises transport
and accomodation for representative Cork teams.
Call for Stewards
In return the Board asks each of Cork Athletic's Clubs to provide a
minimum of four (4) stewards for next Sunday's event. The event
relies very heavily on, and is grateful for the continued support
of member clubs and individual AAI members, without whose support
the event would not be possible and, as a consequence, Cork Athletics
would not be in a position to fund a great proportion of its current
The participants in this year's Mini-Marathon are expected to raise
close to €1,000,000 euro for their respective charites. This much
needed revenue is absolutely vital for the charities.
Stewards should contact Noreen Murphy, on 085-7157810, ideally by
Wed (23rd) evening, or, failing that, as soon as possible. If you find,
ata later stage, that you are available, just call Noreen. Last
minute volunteers can make contact on the day with Noreen Murphy
or Pat Walsh. Stewards need to be in place approx. 1 hour before
the 1pm start.
Volunteering only take a couple of very enjoyable hours, during which
you can, indirectly, help many, many organisations to both survive and
thrive, and through them, many thousands of individuals who require
their support and/or assistance.

on Sunday, or let the Board know that you have them.
