Volunteers Needed: Marathon Water Stop

Are you, or someone you know, looking for a fun way to enjoy the AT&T Austin marathon & 1/2 Marathon without entering the race?

Returning for its second year, 26 Miles for 26 Charities raises awareness of the work of select Austin charities during the marathon. The Down Syndrome Association of Central Texas (DSACT) has once again been chosen as one of the spotlighted charities.

DSACT will be hosting the water stop on 15th, along the half marathon route. We are looking for volunteers to join us as we cheer on the runners and hand out water. Not only will you get to have fun helping out, you'll get a volunteer t-shirt (if you sign up by Feb 2nd), and you'll help support a great organization.

For more information about the water stop please contact the DSACT water stop coordinator, Michelle Garel ( If you'd like to learn more about DSACT, check out the website:
