2012 Atlanta Erg Sprints - HELP WANTED

Post date: Oct 11, 2011 1:48:48 PM

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 12TH, 2012The planning for the 2012 Atlanta Erg Sprints is well underway. This year, it will be held on February 11, 2012. For 8 years, this event has been planned by GT Crew Alumni. Since 2004, it has raised over $38,000 total. Each year, as more alumni get involved and the attendance grows, the event becomes a serious fundraiser for GT Crew. And we know it can be even bigger. WILL YOU HELP?

A team of seven dedicated alumni plan the Atlanta Erg Sprints each year. These seven alumni are doing all they currently can do. For the event to grow even larger, and for it to be an even bigger fundraiser, more alumni participation is required.

Please glance at the areas below where we believe the Atlanta Erg Sprints could use enhancement. Contact AtlantaErgSprints@gmail.com if you would like to volunteer for any of the positions below. Some of these positions do not require you to live in Atlanta. None of them are very time consuming. Each position either directly adds to the fundraising total, or adds value to the event which will bring teams back year after year. We hope you consider helping. This is a very valuable way to give back to GT Crew. You can help raise money through the Atlanta Erg Sprints by donating a small amount of time.
