Every year Cooper-Young is visited by participants in one of our favorite Memphis events, the St. Jude Marathon, and every year residents help out to cheer runners and give them a little much needed water. This year we’re excited to keep this wonderful tradition alive and well! The CYCA will have an official water station located at Mile 18 on the west side Cooper north of Nelson. We’ll be out there from 8:45 to 1:00 pm and we’re looking for some great volunteers to come help us out! All you need to do is sign up here and sign a volunteer waiver the day of the race. Be sure to include your t-shirt size as well and if you have any questions you can always email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 272-2922. We hope to see you there!
