Red Shoe Run 5k Volunteer Opportunity


Please volunteer at the upcoming 10th Anniversary of RMHCDC Red Shoe Run 5k to help change children's lives. This family-friendly event raises essential funds to help keep sick children close to their families and to the care they need. You can help by volunteering with pre-race preparations, race site set up and/or race day activities. The more volunteers we have, the bigger impact we can all make together.

What you'll do: We need volunteers for everything from race preparations, cheering for participants, manning water stations, to assisting with children’s activities.

Volunteer shifts: There will be various 2-hour volunteer shifts over four days, all volunteers must stay through their full assigned shift.

How it works: Come ten minutes earlier than your shift and check in with the Volunteer Coordinator to get your assignment instructions.

Race Day Parking: Free parking available close to the start/finish line. Please be aware the parking lot and entry & exit roads will be closed off from race start until last participant crosses the finish line. Pin drop near 7700 Bull Run Dr, Centreville, VA 20121 https://goo.gl/maps/UcvrXzzjQSQ2

Race Day Attire: Each volunteer will receive a RMHCDC t-shirt, while supplies last. Wear comfortable clothes and closed toed shoes.

Service Hours: We certify service hours for those who need documentation for school, work or community service hours. Don't forget to sign up at 5K volunteer application
