your help is needed to make this a successful year

Bloomsday is looking up to be a record breaking year with applicants up 28% as of our last update. Spokane Firefighters have sponsored the 4th water/aid station along the Bloomsday course about the last 17 years, it is one of the few events we have to get out and support a great community event - somewhere between 40-50k participants run, jog, or walk the course. While many participants travel in from out of town the vast majority are Spokane area residents. We have a couple of sponsors this year: Wake up call coffee and Mike's Old Fashioned donuts have graciously donated our morning treats. Spouses and kids are encouraged to come help out. T-shirts are provided and SFD members receive a 1/4 point. The event can last up to about 2pm by the time we are cleaned up and gone but there is not a specific time commitment or expectation, come on down and go when you gotta go. Please bring a snow shovel (I know you haven't put them away yet) and leaf rake if you got one. Give me a call with questions.
