The Illinois Marathon is being held this Saturday, April 28. The marathon helps to generate funds for a small list of charitable organizations. Champaign-based Prairie Rivers Network, a clean water and river conservation organization, is an official charity of the marathon and is sponsoring a running team.

PRN needs volunteers to help staff water stations. The work is easy and fun! We’re looking for volunteers to join staff and members of our board of directors in handing out water and cheering the marathoners on to the finish line.

If you can commit to joining us from 8:15 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 28th (or for any part of that time), please sign up here. Select “Prairie Rivers Network” from the drop down list and enter the password “prn2012″.

You will receive our Run for Your Rivers tech running shirt.

Our charity running/walking team has raised $5,150 for clean water and healthy rivers. Help cheer them on to the finish line.

If you have any questions please call Prairie Rivers Network at 217-344-2371.
