D1 Recruiters volunteer at Merecedes Kids Marathon in Birmingham

D1 Recruiters, Stephen Madrid and Mike Long, volunteered at the Mercedes Kids Marathon in Birmingham on Feb 13th. Stephen and Mike were tasked with organizing the kids from each age group in to manageable groups (waves) at the starting line. Each wave was then started with the dropping of the rope that separated the kids from the group in front and behind them. In all, there were over 3200 athletes from grades K - 5th grade who registered to run the race. The Mercedes Kids Marathon kicked off with the first age group starting at 10:00am, which was the fifth grade, then each following age group was started 12 minutes after the preceding group. Mike and Stephen had just enough time to bring in kids from group areas, organize them in waves, and then walk them to the starting line. Great job Stephen and Mike on contributing to the success of the Mercedes Kids Marathon! (Mike Long is pictured above)
