Your job is to deliver High Street Hustle neighborhood flyers and cowbells to residents on the route. We’re making sure the neighbors know about the event and temporary street closure. Sound like fun?

You will be given instructions and a map with a portion of the route you will deliver to, along with a bag of flyers and cowbells.
• If resident is not home, leave flyer and cowbell on doorstep, not in mailbox.
• Mark the homes on your map not delivered to.
• Return any remaining flyers/cowbells to Gallagher Fitness Resources, 135 Commercial St NE, downtown.
• Note feedback/concerns from residents.

Delivery Script
We’re making sure you know about the 4th Annual High Street Hustle on Saturday, August 11th.
It begins at the State Capitol.
The route, illustrated on your flyer, will be closed August 11 from 7:30-9:00AM.
While this may be a slight inconvenience, we hope you will support the runners and walkers by:
*Moving your car off the street that morning
*Cheering for them
Please accept the cowbell as a gift. We encourage you to ring it when the runners and walkers go by!
