Giving Back (Broad Ripple Deck) - July 11th and 18th

 Indy Runners has made an ongoing commitment to maintaining the Deck in Broad Ripple. Over the past few years, our members have helped maintain and enhance it for runners, cyclists and families to enjoy. Thanks to the generous support of Lowe's, we're able to move into the next phase of our work on the Deck... and we need your help. 

On Saturday, July 11 (between our summer kickoff run and Symphony on the Prairie), we'll need 6-10 people to wash the deck. On Saturday, July 18 following the run, we'll need 15-20 people willing to help stain the deck. Please (please please please) sign up to help.
