We need 150 walking buddies to walk and assist our residents around the course! We have residents in both power and manual wheelchairs. Manual chairs will need to be pushed around the course. Some power chairs may need assistance with driving their chair, others will require you to run with them! This is a hands on socially interactive job. At registration we will provide you with an information sheet about the residents so that you will have topics of conversation.
*If you choose this job please specify below your abilities and preferences. If this will be your first time volunteering for the 5k we ask that you attend an orientation session on Thursday, April 5th at 6:00pm. For this job we also ask that you are 16 years or older (15 years or younger must by accompanied by an adult.)
Cheer and encourage the resident athletes around the course! Cheer squads will be located at the start and finish line and at the Party Zone. *Great for groups and families with young children.
Safety Monitor (Barricades)
We need volunteers to stand at the barricades to ensure the safety of the course. At times cars may ask you for alternate routes and we will provide you with direction cards to assist drivers around the road closures.
The party zone is located in the middle of the course as an opportunity for participants to stop and take a break, grab water, and have a little bit of fun! You may be asked to assist with spinning the door prize wheel or passing out water to the volunteers.
