Ragnar Trails Coming to Appalachia


Friday June 7th and Saturday June 8th will be the day of the intense, 22-hour Appalachian Trails Ragnar relay race. 8-person teams will be running over 120 miles of trails at Big Bear Camplands in Bruceton Mills.

Ragnar Relay has reached out to Friends of the Cheat, seeking volunteers to help make this first annual event a success! Volunteers can help out with activities such as directing camping and parking, and helping the runners have a smooth transition during separate legs of the relay.

For each volunteer who pledges 4.5 hours, Ragnar will provide a match of $60 for Friends of the Cheat’s programs. Camping will be provided for the volunteers, so invite your friends and spend the weekend at this incredible event. Signing up for multiple shifts are encouraged!

Sign-up for FOC Charity Team #106 to help make this event a success! So far, we have raised $540 through this opportunity, with ability to raise up to $3,200!



Job Posting Update–Correction


Friends of the Cheat is currently recruiting for two different positions, one Field Coordinator and three Field Technicians.  There is a correction to the job postings–both positions require a Class C Drivers License, not a Class A Drivers License as previously named in the posting.

Due to this error and a lag time in print advertisements, Friends of the Cheat is extending the deadline for applications one week to May 10, 2013.

Read the full, corrected job postings in the Get Involved-Positions Offered section of our website.
