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!

You will be asked to create your own username and password. If you note that you are under the age of 18, a waiver form will be sent when you create an account and sign up to volunteer. Please have your parent or guardian sign this form and bring it with you when you volunteer.
The organization will make a donation of $5 per volunteer to CDI, which means the more volunteers we bring, the better the donation (for 20 volunteers, the donation would be $100; for 30 volunteers, it would be $150.)
