Here’s Your Chance to Rise and Shine to Cheer on the
Philadelphia Marathon Participants! Volunteers Needed!

The PCMA PHL Community Service Committee cordially invites you to volunteer at our annual water station at the 2019 Philadelphia Marathon! The event will be held on Sunday, November 24, and our time slot is from 6:00am-11:00am. We will be located at Water Stop #3 at 6th & Walnut. In our experience, this activity ends closer to 9:30am (depending on how fast we clean up the thousands of cups which will be recycled). We are working this station in coordination with a local running club. Our job is to set up thousands of cups of water and some Gatorade, and handing out the cups to the ever-grateful runners while they run past. It’s very stimulating and inspiring!  We know it’s an early morning, but this is for charity. In fact, there are over 24 charities supported by this event, so come and show you care!  

Street parking is available on Walnut Street on either side of 6th Street. You will receive a parking voucher when you arrive. All volunteers receive an official Philadelphia Marathon sweatshirt to wear at the event.
