Event Details

Join Raleigh CityCampers and Code for Raleigh brigade captains for the first ever Raleigh Civic-athon Day on Saturday, December 1 from 9am-12pm.

Help us meet our goal of adopting 20 new bus shelters around the city by December 7. We have a variety of activities planned for future bus shelter adopters, designers, Triangle Wiki users, and Ruby of Rails developers.


Event agenda


This is a walk-up event. Come by anytime to adopt a bus shelter or participate in the civic-athon. The planned activities include:


  • Sign-up to adopt an available bus shelter
    • Get your adoption supply bundle from 10-11 AM while supplies last
  • Submit a poster design to promote the adopt-a-shelter program
  • Create Triangle Wiki pages about existing bus shelters
  • Enhance the adopta app by fixing bugs and working on feature request (Ruby of Rails developers wanted)


After the civic-athon at the Urban Design Center, the group will visit Raleigh bus shelter R9 at 11:45 AM to unveil a newly adopted shelter owner in downtown Raleigh.

What to bring;

  • laptop (sorry, ipads will not work with the wiki software)

We hope you can join us on December 1.
