The Women's Giving Circle Team
Swimming, Biking, Running ... Inspiring, Giving!
August 23, 2009

By participating in the WGC's Circle Team at this year's Iron Girl Triathlon in Columbia, you are joining other women who want to make a difference in the lives of young girls in our community. To participate, you must have already signed up for the Iron Girl Triathlon,

Not only are you an inspiration by maintaining an active, healthy lifestyle, but you are also helping the Women's Giving Circle to expand programs for adolescent girls. The WGC is looking for Circle Team members and volunteers on race day.

What's Involved?
Raise at least $100 ($50 if you’re 18/under) and send your check and registration form to the Women’s Giving Circle, or register online.

You will receive a race quality, stylin’ WGC Circe Team singlet to train in and wear on race day.

You will also receive “tent support” at select women’s races to help hydrate, nourish, and relax with a post race massage courtesy of Her Health PT.

And, the the Columbia Triathlon Association has pledged to match up to $3,000 of WGC racing donations!

Please consider joining our team!

Join the WGC's Circle Team of women dedicated to leading a healthy, active lifestyle and giving back to their community. The Circle Team's featured event is the Columbia Iron Girl that takes place on Sunday, August 23th at Centennial Park.

For more information on the event, check out www.tricolumbia.org/IronGirl/ or www.womensgivingcircle.org. The following opportunities are available for YOU!

Race Expo: Help staff the Women's Giving Circle table at the race expo on Friday, August 21nd and Sat. August 22rd. Pass out information and greet participants. Times/shifts are flexible!

Body Marking: Yes! Write on athlete's arms and legs with a big black sharpie marker! It's true, permanent ink all over and you get to do it! It is an early morning job though. For this adventure, you would need to be at Centennial Park by around 5:30 am.

Water Stop: Help staff a water table! Many groups play music, dress in crazy outfits/hats, and cheer on the runners as they pass out cups of water during the race. Totally fun!

Circle Team Tent: Help set up the munchies/drinks at the Circle Team tent by the finish line. Greet participants and hand out information about the Women's Giving Circle.

Simply decide what you would like to do and contact Maura Dunnigan at Dunnigan5@comcast.net to sign up or if you have questions.
