Flood the Run


Call for photographers – Flood the Run

What:  Flood the Run

When:  Saturday August 9th, 7:30am-12:00pm

The Salvation Army and Matthew 25 are hosting Flood on the Run.  They are having a family fun run around Ellis Park with water-themed obstacles.  They are looking for one to three photographers willing to donate their time and talents to help them document the event.  They would also be more than willing to promote any volunteer photographers.

Any photographer who is interested in volunteering for Flood the run on August 9, please email [email protected] by Wed August 6, and I will pass on to you the contact person for the event.

Matthew 25 is an independent, local nonprofit organization in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. It exists to strengthen core neighborhoods on the west side of Cedar Rapids, and to provide opportunities for people to act on their values through service.  Matthew 25′s vision is to help create thriving, connected communities where all people are valued and talents are multiplied. It is a highly innovative and collaborative organization that partners with others to work in three program areas: Neighborhood Building, Youth Empowerment, and Cultivate Hope.  http://www.hub25.org/

The Salvation Army was founded with the desire to help those less fortunate and the belief that all people are entitled to essentials like food, clothing, safe housing, second chances and the opportunity to prosper.  Through its many programs and services, The Army seeks first to meet the immediate concerns and issues of individuals in crisis by providing for these most basic human needs. http://www.tsacedarrapids.org
