We are looking for operators to staff the Motif #1 Day 5K, on Saturday, May 19 at 9:00 AM in Rockport. Please be on location by 8:30 AM.
Please let me know if you can staff a communications check-point for the event by Thursday, May17th so I can plan staffing positions for the event.
Please let us know what type of equipment you plan to use. (i.e.: mobile; HT; ¼-wave mag mount; OEM rubber duck; etc.) so we have a better idea of where to locate you along the event course per the potential of your equipment.
This is the seventh annual 5k and 1-mile fun run for the Rockport Public Schools Health and Wellness Programs. The race was born from the desire to get the students and community more involved in health and wellness activities. The money raised from this event goes directly to the health and wellness programs at the Rockport Public Schools. Last year the money they raised went to planting trees to shade some of the classrooms, a new water fountain with the capability to fill a bottle, hydroponics planting system for their science room and lots more. They were thrilled to be able to purchase 35 pairs of snowshoes for their physical education classes to use this winter.
