Volunteer on April 19th 2015
5K Race Volunteers
The 5th Annual Homeless Voice Race Home (formerly called The Race to End Homelessness) starts Sunday, April 19, 2015 at 8:00 AM (EDT). Volunteers will need to be there at 6am.
Volunteering to help another human being is one of the kindest things that any individual could do. In the past five years we have had such a pouring outreach of volunteers, and for that we can not thank you enough!
Learn more about how you can volunteer from the information on the right, and when you are ready, you can fill-out the Volunteer Signup Form below to get started!
The event is being held at Charnow Park, which is located at 300 Connecticut St, Hollywood, FL.
Ways to Volunteer
It is our goal to make our next 5K Race the best one yet! But to do that we are going to need your help. Individuals as well as groups are welcome to volunteer for the upcoming 5K. You might be surprised at how fun and fulfilling these events can be when participating with family or friends – so don’t forget to mention it!
Our 5K races and 10K races are some of our bigger annual events that our volunteers really make a difference at. Below are some of the ways that you may be volunteering on race day.
Actual duties for event day will be given out in the order that you arrive at our event. You will need to be at Charnow Park between 6am to 7am. (The earlier the better for us).
Some of the Volunteer Duties are:
- Event setup
- Event registration
- Passing out shirts
- Handing out water
- Event cleanup
- Communications assistance
- Safety watch
The event will last until about 10:30am and our volunteer coordinator Maryann Sullivan can write a letter to your school if needed. Hours will include the drive to the event and home.
If you prefer to speak to someone regarding volunteering instead of using the online form above, please call Maryann Sullivan, our event coordinator at (954) 431-2721.
