Pay It Forward
Paramount is on a mission to become the finest triathlon club in Northern New Jersey! Having said that, if you attended the Kick Off meeting, you heard about a new Paramount “incentive” called, Pay It Forward. What does that mean, exactly?
A club is only as strong as it’s members. You will reap what you sow. If you want to belong to a great organization, then you have to be willing to step up to the plate and create it! So here is the deal...
We’re asking all Paramount members to “pay” a minimum of 5 hours of “service” to the club for the year. “Service” is a very loose term, and I believe that there is not one person out there on our membership roster that cannot easily meet the minimum.
Here are some examples:
· Volunteer to lead a ride or run (Splinter groups)
· Help out before, during or after the Randolph Triathlon
· Help out at the Kids’ Triathlon
· Commit to being on the Paramount Team at organized races like the Rutger’s Unite 1/2 marathon or NJ State Triathlon, etc.
Before you say...”But I’m not fast enough” to be a leader, relax...Let’s call you a “host” instead. It just means that you are committing your time to be at a location and be a greeter or even be a sweep rider for the slowest person that shows up. Feel better? Good!
We’ll be looking for you.
