To all our friends...86th Annual Tely 10..
This coming weekend Sunday July 28th, the 86th Annual Tely 10 will be happening.The total number of runners and walkers for this year's event will be over 3000!
Volunteer road marshals/flaggers - In speaking with Race Director, Randy Ball therre is a need for 12 to 15 more volunteer road marshals for the Mount Pearl segment of the race. The Mount Pearl segment of the race runs for about two hours from 8 to 10 AM. ...many of you know Randy for his officiating with basketball, volleyball and competitive swimming.
What a great way to be involved with this historic Newfoundland sports event! This could be an excellent project for a service club, sports team, other community groups, or anyone who wants to get a little closer to the race.
Each road marshal is assigned to street corners along Topsail Road to ensure barricades are kept in place and neighborhood vehicle traffic doesn't come onto Topsail Road. Road marshals are kitted out in an official Tely 10 Volunteer Shirt and safety vest.
Think you might like to help out? Maybe you have a group who would like to be involved? Give us a shout at the Alliance office 748-6489 or e-mail Karen at firstname.lastname@example.org . Let's show that Mount Pearl community spirit!!
We look forward to hearing from you.

Helping kids Beat the Heat ...
When we play sport sweat is produced to cool the body. Children generally sweat less than adults and therefore lose less heat. This means children are less tolerant to exercising in warm weather for prolonged periods of time.
