Course Volunteer High Priority

Course volunteers are located on the course where there is a turn in the course or a street crossing to ensure the safety of the runners and making sure they know where to go. Volunteers need to be able to be on their feet for the duration of the race and put on a smile and cheer on our runners and walkers.

Kids Activities

We offer various kids activities, including face painting and hula hoops. If you're great with kids and have some artistic abilities, this volunteer role is for you.

Clean Up

October 6, 2019

Details

As you can imagine, a 5k involves a lot of items and clean up is necessary. Volunteers are needed to help gather the items from the main event area once the race has concluded, help load up a Uhaul, and ideally help unload at our office, which is just down the street. Volunteers should be able to be on their feet and able to lift at least 50 pounds with a smile on their face.

Super volunteer - I'll do anything

At least 1 more volunteer needed.

This is not a specific volunteer opportunity, but those who sign up are game for any of the other volunteer needs. Once we get closer to the event, we'll place you in a volunteer role and let you know what you're doing. :)
