Volunteer for the Walk/Run/Eat for Safe Schools!

On Sunday, October 13th, GSAFE will hold our 7th Annual Walk/Run/Eat for Safe Schools.  The event features a 5K walk, a 5K run, and a 10K run, and we are always in need of volunteers to help us out that day with various tasks:

Event set-up:Volunteers at WRE2012

Staff and volunteers arrive at the Goodman Community Center pretty early that morning to start prepping the gym and the outside area for the event.  Tasks include helping us to cover the gym floor, hanging signs, setting up informational tables, and sorting t-shirts for the registration volunteers.


At 9:30 we open registration, and we need a good team of folks to help us check in the walkers and runners, give them their bibs and t-shirts, and register any folks who didn’t sign up ahead of time.

Timing team:

The timing team will work with the staff of Race Day Events to help keep track of the runners as they cross the finish line.  Timing team members also provide another important task: Cheering on the runners as they finish.

Course marshals:

We need lots and lots of folks out on the route, making sure that the runners are going the right way and being an extra pair of eyes watching out for oncoming cars and other vehicles.  Would your GSA or organization like to “sponsor” a turn on the route?  Let us know!

Event clean-up:

Once the Walk/Run/Eat for Safe Schools is over, we always need people to stick around and help us return the Goodman Center gym and surrounding areas back to their original, tip-top shape.  This would include folding down chairs and tables, taking down signs, and helping us make sure all the garbage and recycling are in the right place.
