FIRST: Thanks to all of the runners of the Thunder Road Marathon who take the time to cast their vote for BEST CHEER STATION. Winning station gets $1,000 to donate to charity of choice!!!! Winning station will be announced on DECEMBER 6th. If the PaddleFit Station wins our money will go to the Charlotte Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation.
I have some great friends who came out to help me with this project and I REALLY appreciate it. They made coffee, signs, dressed in their BEACH attire, and jumped up and down for more than 3 hours. PaddleFit is a combination of land + water fitness so this was so in line with what we do which is support fitness on all levels. At PaddleFit we have a huge team of paddlers around the world who spend much of their time in lakes, rivers and oceans. We are passionate about keeping those water ways clean and safe. That is why the money from this event (if we win) will go to the Surf Riders Foundation Charlotte Chapter. Thanks to Tony and Adam from Surf Rider Charlotte (and Cameron) who came out and cheered with us! Also a "beach themed" cheer station would not be complete without HULA GIRLS. We were honored to have our local Aloha Island Hula Girls at our station supporting us. I hope the runners enjoyed seeing them and hearing the Island music.
