The purpose of our race is to raise funds to build smart homes for catastrophically injured veterans, and we couldn’t do it without you! Our race runs on volunteers. Everything from registration and packet pick up and staffing water stations, to assisting in the after party area. The needs are many and this is your opportunity to be a part of history.
Race Registration Volunteers: These individuals will assist interested runners complete their race registration on the day of the race, if they have not already done so. This is primarily a stationary position at the registration booth. AM (beginning at 9 am), mid-morning and PM shifts are available. (5-8 per shift)
Packet Pick Up Volunteers: These individuals will interact with the already registered runners to assist them in picking up their packets which will include their runner bibs, t-shirts, etc. This is primarily a stationary position at the registration/packet pick up table. AM (beginning at 9 am), mid-morning and PM shifts are available. (5-8 per shift)
T-shirt volunteers: These volunteers will back up the Packet Pick Up volunteers and pull shirts by size as they are called out by the PPU volunteers. This job may require some heavy lifting. AM (beginning at 9 am), mid-morning and PM shifts are available. (5-8 per shift)
Water Stations: There are 3 water stations on the course. Each one requires at least 15 volunteers. All materials for this station (water coolers, water, ice, cups) are provided. These positions are on the outer areas of the course. Your organization may set up banners and signs advertising your group at your water station as long as they do not impede the runners. This position requires mobility and possibly heavy lifting. Must be in position no later than 6 pm.
After party volunteers: These positions are high mobility and possibly mid to heavy lifting. Responsibilities will include bag check, food service, children’s activity area, and more. Primarily a mid afternoon and PM shift. Some volunteers will be needed up to after party closing at approximately midnight (up to 100 volunteers)

The 343: On 9/11/2001, we lost 343 first responders when the Twin Towers fell. At our race, we have poster size photographs of each of those heroes. We are looking for 343 volunteers to hold those signs on a portion of the race course. This position requires standing from 6:45-8:15 pm.
