Hello All CJ’s Resolution Challenge participants! The race is just a week away and I wanted to say hello and touch base with you all. Firstly, thank you all so much for your support in the fight against autism! This event will bring help to those who might be struggling with autism. So thank you! And just a few notes about race day:
Packet Pick-up- Race day registration and packet pick-up will begin at 7:30am. The races will start at 9am.
Weather- It is still too soon to say with any certainty what kind of weather we will have that morning. However, I think its safe to assume that it will be cold. So please dress appropriately. A change (or two) of clothing might not be a bad idea. We will be hanging tarps on the side of the main pavilion and we will have some space heaters, but please keep in mind that this is an outdoor event, in January, in Pennsylvania. Dress warmly!
Race Format- As you know there are two challenges taking place concurrently- RC Revolutions and the Last Man Standing. There will be prizes for the top three men and women in each category. It is important that if you have changed your mind about the challenge you wish to participate in that you let us know.
Parking- There will be plenty of parking with signage and volunteers to direct you where to go.
Silent Auction- There will be a silent auction going on during the race with some great stuff up for bids. Pictures and description of the items are on FaceBook. All proceeds to go to our autism charities.
Grub- Included in your registration is a meal ticket, good for breakfast and lunch. What a deal, right?! Breakfast will be coffee or hot chocolate and donuts. Lunch is soup, bread, dessert, and a beverage. For those that are not registered, all items will be available for sale as well. All proceeds from the sale of food and drink also go to our autism charities.
Cups and CJ’s Elephants- Also for sale will be CJ’s Resolution Challenge cups and CJ’s Elephants for Autism Awareness. The stuffed elephants are baby safe and totally adorable. The proceeds from the sale of cups and elephants will also go to our autism charities.
Autism Charities- Just a reminder, this unique, fun event is benefiting two autism charities- Geisinger’s Autism & Developmental Medicine Institute and Operation Jack Autism Foundation. We are very fortunate to have representatives from ADMI as well as the founder of Operation Jack joining us that day!
I’m looking forward to meeting everyone on the 4th! I’m hoping you’re looking forward to race day as much as I am!
Janell Weaver, Race Director
