The Thanksgiving Day Run Thru the Woods sponsored by GE will be held on Thanksgiving Day, November 22, 2011 at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. 

The 23rd Annual GE Run Thru the Woods "Directed by the YMCA" is an annual charity event designed for all ages and levels of fitness. Proceeds benefit the South Montgomery County YMCA Partners Program, Operation Graduation, Conroe ISD AFJROTC, and Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion Education Outreach Program. In 2011, more than 5200 partcipants joined us and raised more than $150,000. 

Need 6 Partners to help assume the role as timers out on the course. The van with timers takes off when the race starts and then drops off the times at each mile marker. The timers have a stop watch and call out times to the runners as they pass by. The van will then follow the last runner and pick up the timers and return them back to the Pavilion.

Need 4 timers(Partners) for 5 Mile Race and 2 Timers(Partners) for 3 Mile Race.

The volunteers need to be at the start line at 7:30am; will be back at The Pavilion at10:00 am giving you plenty of time to plan your holiday festivities.  If you are interested in helping reply to [email protected] or by calling 281-210-1125.  This is a fun event to volunteer for, so be sure to sign up today.  More information about this event is available on The Pavilion’s website.
