Dear Medical Volunteers
On behalf of New York Road Runners, thank you for your interest in volunteering for the ING New York City Marathon 2007 Medical Team. The marathon will be held on Sunday, November 4. Enclosed is the Medical Volunteer Application for you to complete and return to me.
Dr. Stephen Perle
University of Bridgeport
225 Myrtle Ave
Bridgeport, CT 06604
(If you are on campus at the University of Bridgeport, my mailbox is outside of Dean Zolli’s office on the middle floor of END Hall. Do not put them under my door – please use my mailbox
The attached application says to mail the application to the medical director, Dr. Maharam. If you have received the application along with this email please send the application to me rather than Dr. Maharam. He wants captains and coordinators to bundle the applications. Make sure to note that I am the captain that recruited you on the attached form.
All applications are due to me by September 26, 2007. NO EXCEPTIONS. I will accept faxes and emailed applications. Faxes can be sent to me with a cover sheet addressed to me at 203 576-4351.
As a Medical Team volunteer, you will receive a credential for your race day assignment as well as an official medical t-shirt, rain poncho, orientation booklet, and thank-you certificate. We are offering a choice of two orientation and credential pickup sessions for medical volunteers, and one for team captains. In order to work on the Medical Team on marathon day, you must attend an orientation and stay for the entire session (6:30-9:00 p.m.). Note that you must bring photo identification to the session you choose to attend. Parking is not provided.
Please forward the attached application and this email to anyone you know that would be interested in volunteering. You will only be contacted if there is a problem with your application. No one will contact you to tell you that you are part of our medical team, just show up for one of the two orientations.
