Ambassadors Needed

On July 4 Common Heart is hosting the inaugural Common heart Firecracker Run in Lake Park, NC.  The run features a professionally timed 10K & 5K race as well as a 1K and Kids Firecracker Dash.   Lake Park provides us with a great flat course circling the village area with its greens and lakes.  It will be a wonderful day.   We are hoping for a good showing for this event. The public is encouraged to register and join us. There is more information and online registration at

But there other ways to participate in the race and support the work we do through our food pantries, thrift store, free tax service and referral network. We need plenty of volunteers to work on July 4th. We need others to help organize and plan. But there is yet another way to help!

We are looking for some Ambassadors.  Ambassadors are runners/walkers that will participate in the race, plus they go the extra mile. Instead of paying a registration fee, they ask their friends, relatives and co-workers to sponsor them.  They tell our story and invite others to help.  We have some great prizes for participation too.  Ambassadors can win Gold Passes to Carowinds, an iPad or a vacation for example.

Ambassadors do not work by themselves.  Our Ambassadors are part of a team.  They get support, training and tools to help them spread the word and collect donations.  Right now we are looking for team captains and team members.  A captain recruits other ambassadors and encourages them.  Contact for more information about being an Ambassador captain or team member.  Captains are recruiting Ambassador team members right now.

The Ambassador Kick Off Meeting is just around the corner on June 5 at New Covenant Baptist Church Indian Trail.
