Referral: MDA Chicago Spring Half Marathon

Description 
Muscular Dystrophy Association is the official charity of the Chicago Spring Half Marathon/10K and needs your help!
The MDA is looking for group volunteers to set up and manage two Aid Stations—handing out water to keep athletes hydrated while cheering them on out on the course!
MDA can’t thank volunteers enough for their help, and want to try to show how they are appreciated. All volunteers will receive an event specific volunteer shirt, water, snacks, a light meal, service hours, and more.

Impact 
Team Momentum is MDA’s endurance training program that empowers individuals of all athletic abilities to train for a half or full marathon while supporting kids and adults with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related life-threatening diseases.
Participants dedicate their miles, muscles and personal finish line to freeing families from the harm of muscle-debilitating diseases that take away everyday freedoms like walking, running, hugging and even breathing. Aid station volunteers will be supporting Team Momentum participants, as well as all other Chicago Half Marathon/10K runners.
