Across the Bay 10k

Families of Monarch Academy,


Calling all Bay Area residents! This year we are asking you to volunteer in conjunction with the Monarch Community to raise awareness of the condition of the Chesapeake Bay. Monarch teachers and students have had the opportunity to learn and experience the negative impacts that humans have on the environment, and more specifically the Chesapeake Bay. This is a great opportunity for parents and family members to model the service and compassion we hope to instill in our students.


How can you help?


We ask that you offer a portion of your day to help make the “Across the Bay 10K” weekend a success. Below is a list of weekend events:


  • Saturday, November 8, at the Navy Marine Corps Stadium, there will be a pre-race expo that is in need of volunteers. Volunteers are needed to hand out race packets, bibs, t-shirts and help facilitate the Clearshark Kids Run.


  • Sunday, November 9, the Across the Bay 10K needs volunteers to check-in runners, hand out water bottles, distribute medals at the finish line, and much more!


Volunteering at this event is a marvelous opportunity for ages 16 and up to gain volunteer hours and learn to become a contributing member of society. Please take a look at the attached flyer for more details and information!
