On Thursday, March 15th the CDI team and 16 CDI Scholars volunteered at the Rock N’ Roll Marathon-Health and Fitness Expo at the DC Armory. 2013 Scholars, 2012 Scholars, and College Scholars all participated in this community service event. The Health and Fitness Expo is where runners go to pick up their race bibs, T-shirts, and goodie bags. Each of the volunteers gave runners their bibs and answered a variety of race questions. With thousands of people running the marathon, half marathon, and relays, the Scholars were all very busy helping the runners get their gear. They volunteered from 3:15p.m.-7:15p.m. and returned back to the CDI office around 8:00p.m.
The race organization graciously donated $5 to CDI per volunteer. With all the Scholars who participated, we were able to raise $95. Both Scholars and counselors had a great time volunteering for this event and hope to participate again next year.
Here are a few pictures from the Expo!
Collegiate Directions is pleased to welcome the CDI Class of 2013 into the CDI family. After a rigorous application review process–which includes interviews with prospective Scholars and home visits with their families–CDI counselors selected the following Scholars from our six partner Schools into the program. This year’s application pool was one of our most competitive to date.
