Hey Reptiles! The one and only race sponsored by Team Red Lizard will be the Red Lizard 5-Miler on Saturday May 28. We'll need lots of lizard paws on the ground before, during and after the race to make it work.

Kids race starts at 830AM. The 5 Miler starts at 9AM. Both start from the Foot Traffic store in Lake Oswego 333 S. State Street.

Plz check the volunteer task list below and post the task(s) number(s) you would be willing to do. (Note: The number in parentheses after each task is the number of volunteers needed for that task.) I'll keep this first post updated with the latest volunteer signup info.

Questions, let me know. Let's go Lizards!

I'm not running this year so I can help out. It would be fun to be announcer unless our Race Director, Brian, wants that job. If that's the case, stick me in anywhere.

I'm planning to run/hobble the race this year, so I won't be able to lead the Kids Kilometer in 2011, but that was a blast last year and I highly recommend that task to anyone! :thumbsu:

Jeff,

My teen daughter and her boyfriend will help volunteer at the aid station. Her name is Kristen (she helped at Special Olympics last year) and her boyfriend is Christian. Yeah, it's pretty funny around the house with a Kristen & Christian. :wacko:
