    Event Name: Hendersonville Half Marathon Benefiting The Mighty Mitchell Foundation Venue: Streets of Indian Lake Venue address: 300 Indian Lake Blvd HENDERSONVILLE, Tennessee 37075 USA Event Start: 09/22/2018 - 7:00 AM Event End: 09/22/2018 - 11:00 AM Event Website: https://hendersonvillehalf.com/ Expected number of attendees: 300 Requested number of characters: 100+ Requested character types: Secure changing/staging area: Yes Comments: The Hendersonville Half Marathon has become one of the Rotary Club of Hendersonville's yearly fundraising events to benefit a local charity. This is the third year of our race. In the past two years we have had runners from 28 different cities in the state of Tennessee in addition to Hendersonville. Our reach out of state includes Arkansas, Kentucky, Indiana, Alabama, N. Carolina, Texas, Missouri, Virginia, Kansas, and Illinois. The last two years we have given money to Mary’s Magical Place in support of their efforts to build a playground for special needs children here in Hendersonville. Construction is underway and we are happy to have helped in that endeavor. This year our race committee has chosen The Mighty Mitchell Foundation as the recipient of all the registration proceeds. Our sponsorship funds allow us to certify the course, purchase safety vests, run internet and paper advertising and pay the company that registers the racers and sets up our start/finish line. This race has engaged the high school honor societies, business clubs, athletes and volunteers from the community. The Streets of Indian Lake has been very supportive of our efforts, as well as Fleet Feet, the YMCA and many local hotels. And, of course, we could not have pulled off the event these last two years without the support of our Mayor's office, the Hendersonville Police Department and our EMTs. In addition to the race, there will be a walk/run for pediatric cancer current and former patients, their families, and other kids that want to help in support of kids fighting cancer. After the race there will be a pediatric cancer festival with jump houses, inflatables, games, and activities for kids. This is a nonprofit organization. Referred by: Website. I have seen troopers at parades and our kids are big Star Wars fans so we thought it would be a great idea for all the kids

In addition to all the exhibits, guests also get to engage in hands-on activities run by our science educators, see a show in our planetarium, and participate in a costume contest if they want to dress up to the pop culture theme of that Way Late (in this case, Stars Wars vs. Star Trek). Requester has asked for David Franzen to be one of our four, as he volunteers there. So we have three more spots. Preference will go to at least one more TK so we can have two of those at the door for the start (event requested)

I am working to find out if the passes you get are valid for the same night. Assume on your *date* showing up when you do, and hanging out until showtime.

    **I am sharing this invite with the Corellian Base. We have a banner for a table that features MSG and CB graphics already. I'd like us to run a photo op booth and have donations go toward Dreams & Wishes. We are being offered a total of 50 passes for costumed folks, and 12 for handlers/photographers. I'm going to split each with the RL group. so that's 25 spots and 6 handlers, respectively, for each group. NOTE: Handler passes are for HANDLERS. Not your kids, not your girlfriend's brother, not for anyone who is gonna come to the con for free and ditch us. These folks are giving us a lot, let's not take advantage of that. If you have friends/kids who want to come, I suggest picking them up a ticket on Groupon. It's like 25 bucks a day there, and kids 10 and under get in free anyway.

    Helmets and lightsabers are allowed, no blasters. We are being allowed to see the movie and have snacks and drinks, but every seat in this theater is a reserved seat now so you may not get to sit with friends or you may not be able to get into the specific showing you want, unless you buy a ticket. There is no way around this, but we will do our best to be flexible. If you are trooping this, you MUST sign up both here and on the Google Drive sheet linked below. The theater will NOT allow anyone not on this list to troop or see the movie. This is to keep people from sneaking friends who didn't troop into the showings. This is cross-posted with the Corellian Base of the Rebel Legion. We will use the same signup sheet.
