“Live” Auction begins at 8:30pm:
As a way for you to get to know the athletes and staff of Team USA Arizona, we thought it would be fun to auction them off! With ideas of their own creation, each of them is worth more to us than we can even express. We hope you’ll agree.

Paige Higgins: Domestique, at your service! “The KEY workout to Coach Greg McMillan’s training of Team USA Arizona marathoners is the long tempo run on Lake Mary Road. This run really lets you know you are ready to go and toughens you up for the race. Paige knows how important it is to have support while you’re on the road. That's why she is offering to be your domestique on 2 of your tempo runs! Paige will start with you, drive behind you on the shoulder, record your mile splits, hand you fluids, and offer encouragement the whole way. She will also take photos to document your workout. Afterwards, she'll treat you to the “magical recovery breakfast sandwich” at Macy’s, where you can talk about your workout (or not talk about your workout!), relax and enjoy a job well done!!”

Ian Burrell: Drum like Bonham...or Burrell! "Learn the basics of drumming from Ian Burrell, former drummer for the international punk rock sensation, "No One's Heroes." Ian is a self-taught drummer and is offering to teach you a minimum of 3 fundamental beats and the art of the drum roll on the drum kit. Enjoy 5 one-hour sessions that are sure to bring out your inner John Bonham.
