Saving Sharks with Sophi – Blog 14 “Urban Wildland Race”

Sophi Volunteers for the Urban Wildland Race (Click to Enlarge)

I got to be a volunteer at a ½ Marathon race.  My school had a water stop at 3 miles and my whole family helped.  We had to go super early in the morning and we got t-shirts.  It was a “green” race and it helps my school go to the Woodlake nature center and learn about animals, seasons, life cycles and other stuff.  I handed out water when the runners went by and I even knew some of the runners.

The numbers that they had on their shirts could be planted and they would grow flowers.  You can learn more about the race if you watch this video and I am in it (2:40) and my principal got interviewed too.  It was really fun!

At the end of the race we cleaned all of the cups ups – they were all around the trail.  Then I went and watched some of the race because it crossed the streets so we couldn’t get back to our house right away.
