Good afternoon-

We are preparing for the 5th Annual GE 5K to benefit the Petit Family Foundation, to be held on July 15, 2012.  This fun community race attracts several thousand runners and walkers each year and has raised more than $600,000 to support the important work of Petit Family Foundation in memory of Jennifer Hawke-Petit, and Haley and Michaela Petit.  On race day, more than 300 volunteers serving in a variety of roles make this one of the best run events anywhere!  We are in need of additional volunteers for this year’s event and are hopeful that you, your family, friends or co-workers will join our team and help make this event a success again this year.

If you are interested in volunteering as an individual or part of a group, please contact Chris Pallatto at [email protected]. Thanks in advance!
