Join us in the morning to set up and prepare the site for the day’s events. Jobs may involve unloading and distributing supplies, setting up tables and chairs, and hanging banners and signage. Set-up may be different at each site and may involve a variety of tasks, but your help is critical in ensuring that everything is ready before the walkers arrive! (lifting involved)
Volunteers will be scheduled in pairs to direct traffic in the parking areas. Safety vests and flags will be provided and must be used during this volunteer shift. Specific instructions will be given to alert you to alternate parking areas, special vehicles, etc.
Help set up the food service areas, and hand out food and beverages to the walkers before and after the walk.
Registration volunteers greet and check in walkers, collect pledge envelopes, distribute t-shirts and provide general event information to walkers as they arrive. Registration volunteers will be trained on the check in process during a mandatory training session the morning of the event.
