SATURDAY: Kids Run Course Helpers

May 11, 2024

Details

This might be the easiest (and fastest) volunteer opportunity around. We are looking for volunteers who are one-part cheerleader and one-part friendly police officer. As participants race around the outside of the baseball field (called the "warning track"), it will be your job to ensure they don't wander onto the grass field.

What a great volunteer opportunity for friends and/or family members of race participants to get in on the action and cheer on their favorite runners!

The race doesn't take very long, so feel free to enjoy the rest of the day as one of our guests. Or if you're feeling extra helpful, feel free to sign-up for an additional volunteer role to help with the remainder of our event.

We are looking for volunteers to help guide our 5K and 5M participants back into the baseball stadium as they near the end of their race. You will be positioned near the back entrance of the stadium, directing runners into the tunnel and onto the baseball field track where our finish line is located.

Participants might be pretty tired at this point, so our goal is to provide extra motivation and encouragement as they enter the stadium towards the finish line.

This is a wonderful opportunity for volunteers who want to be in the action and ensure our event is a huge success. The happier participants are at the end of the race, the more likely they will join us again next year to support foster care!

Here they will find our re-fueling zone stocked with additional water, fruit and healthy snacks.

Help us show our appreciation to each and every runner (and walker) who participated in our annual event to support local children in foster care.
