An event the size and scope of the Cardinal Sports Booster 5K will require many volunteers throughout the planning process and during race weekend. Being a volunteer gives you the opportunity to ensure that everyone who participates has a great experience. We are seeking volunteers to organize race packet material, assist with set-up, registration and clean-up after the event, encourage participants during the event, and other areas as needed. If you are interested in volunteering for the 5K event, please email the Race Coordinator at email@example.com to be added to the volunteer list. A tentative volunteer meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, August 7 at 6:00 pm – Location TBA.
