Mile Marker 25 is near the finish line, and volunteers from Surf or Sound Realty, along with their friends and family, will encourage all of the runners and pass out water and Gatorade to the marathon participants. We have created signs with encouraging statements on them that we will post leading up to our station, and the signs will be paired will pink flamingos! You can rent 12 pink flamingos for a minimum donation of $25 and the funds go to Hatteras Island Meals. HI Meals is a non-profit organization staffed by volunteers that delivers a hot meal to nourish and enrich the lives of homebound and other people in need in every village on Hatteras Island.
