• Receive a cool Staff T-Shirt

VOLUNTEER CATEGORIES:


General Volunteer (on Event Day)

As a General Volunteer our coordinators will position you as needed, where necessary. This includes any of the event day categories plus locations not listed. Time needed varies from 2 to 6 hours. This position may be inside or outside. A hat, sunscreen and bug spray might be a good idea. IF you are particular, okay to bring your own drink too.

Outreach Volunteer (in the months prior to Event Day)

Volunteers would need their own transportation, and be willing to drive to various events to set up an outreach table/tent. Most outreach opportunities are on a Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday. Duties at Outreach include arriving to an outreach event in a timely manner, setting up the tent and display, plus dispersing outreach materials such as postcards and promotional items. An outgoing personality is a big plus. The most successes are achieved when a team of 2 or 3 friends take the opportunity to do this together. Most events are "all day" but usually just a single day. Expect to meet with the outreach coordinator the day before the event to receive the materials required, such as the tent/banner/flags etc. Will then need a "post event" meeting to return the materials for the next event. This position qualifies for all the event day benefits. This position may be inside or outside. A hat, sunscreen and bug spray might be a good idea.

Event Set-up (in the days and weeks prior to Event Day)

These positions may include marking out the course, hanging signs, stuffing envelopes, assembling obstacles or setting up tables and chairs. Days and time needed varies based on task. This position qualifies for all the event day benefits. This position may be inside or outside. A hat, sunscreen and bug spray might be a good idea.

Registration (on Event Day)

In this position volunteers will staff the participant check-in, packet pick-up, dispense T-Shirts and assist with same day registration. Some positions will handle cash, check and credit card transactions, so if you have cashier or bank teller skills please tell us in the comments section. Most of these positions are indoors. Time needed 4-5 hours.

BBQ (on Event Day) 

This position includes cooks, servers, food runners and attendants. You may be on your feet for a while. This position qualifies for all the event day benefits. This position may be inside or outside. A hat, sunscreen and bug spray might be a good idea.

Obstacle Construction (in the days and weeks prior to Event Day)
