More People = Less Work + More Fun
This year’s 5K is shaping up to be our biggest ever! That means we’ll need more volunteers that ever to ensure that the event goes smoothly. To volunteer, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the subject line, just write “volunteer". In the message, let us know what Team(s) you’d like to be a part of, your t-shirt size and your phone number.
