Rock and Run | Building the Team
I love seeing the team that comes together for events like this! I think these “outreach” events are really core to what we do around here at Liquid . . . getting out of our seats and onto the streets!
Start/Finish Team – Responsible for checking people in and making sure that all the participants get lined up on the starting line!
On Course Team – Making sure our people have a great experience actually running the race – including water tables, cheerleaders and the detour team!
Roadies – Our crack team of amazing guys who help us transform the spaces into a great party site and a fun race course!
Food Team – Gotta feed the crowd! 😉
Rock Team – It’s hard to have a “Rock and Run” without a great Rock Team.
Tech / Media – The guys in black shirts who make it all happen!
These teams are being led by a mixture of volunteers and staff. We’ve had a series of 1on1 meetings and conference calls to make sure that everyone is moving together.
We use Google Forms a bunch in this project – people sign up in a form, that then a volunteer places team onto a team (another Google Doc) and sends an email out on my behalf. The team leader can track (real time!) how the placement is going for their particular area.
My hope is that all of our team members have a fun time serving at the Rock and Run . . . this is a great chance to get to know some other people and create some good in our community!
