VOLUNTEERS - ASSIGNMENTS/OPPORTUNITIES
When you register as a volunteer, you will be asked if you volunteered in 2017.
Once registered, our Volunteer Coordinator will contact you regarding specific volunteer assignments.
We need many volunteers in the weeks leading up to the Walk. There are yard signs to put together, shirts to inventory, and we have our scheduled late registration and pre-registration pick-up opportunities. We also have a few office related types of assignments such as matching race labels to race bibs, alphabetizing race bibs, etc.
Volunteers come in all shapes and sizes! We're looking for both men and women 18 and older, and welcome individuals as well as groups. We always tend to have problems finding enough men, so we challenge you guys to step up to the plate and help us out! We need your strength and muscle! And while we look forward to working with volunteer groups, we cannot guarantee that everyone will always be assigned to the same task (we hope everyone is a true volunteer and will appreciate helping out where needed).
Don't forget, you can register as a paid participant and still volunteer by choosing the option, "I would like to Volunteer Prior to the Day of the Event". As a paid participant, you are not allowed to volunteer on the actual day of the event but can absolutely be used during the weeks prior to the event.
Volunteers are fundraisers too. We appreciate that so many of our volunteers choose to fundraise for the Walk of Life! This is just another wonderful way to "give back to the community". Everyone who registers ONLINE will receive a confirmation email with the link to their personal Participant Center. Be sure to click on that link in the confirmation email to find out more about this powerful and simple fundraising tool. Don't forget to check out the information on the special fundraising milestone prizes!
