Tely 10 Waterstop Volunteers Needed

For many years Pearlgate Track has looked after the first water stop in the Tely 10. This year many of their regular volunteers are away competing at the Atlantic Track and Field event in New Brunswick so they need 20-25 people to step in and help out!

It's a great location to view the race (near Apple Auto Glass 1179 Topsail Road), and it's the first water stop on the route so you'll be finished early!

If you're able to help out please drop an email to carolann@pearlgate.ca and show up at the waterstop 7:30am this Sunday morning.
