Volunteers Needed

There are a TON of upcoming community events that depend on local volunteers.  Show your support by giving your time to one of these upcoming events.  Your time commitment could be as little as a hour and could be done individually or in groups with family, friends or co-workers.
 
If you’re planning to participate in one of these events, don’t rule out volunteering.  Many different volunteer roles are needed and don’t conflict with participating.  Volunteering at registration or event clean up allows you to participate in the race AND volunteer.
 
If you’re not planning to walk or run, volunteering is a great way to get in on the action.  Check out these other benefits of volunteering at a race event.
