VOLUNTEER PROGRAM

 

2014 Volunteer registration opens on May 6th!

Discover the healthy benefits of helping others.

There are many reasons to volunteer, like giving back to the community or social networking. There is another important reason to volunteer, that you may not have considered:
Volunteering is good for your health.

Yes, studies show that volunteering provides benefits to both your mental and physical health. This means that the time you spend volunteering offers a double advantage: You help others and you're also helping yourself. The Health Benefits of Volunteering: A Review of Recent Research, compiled by the Corporation for National and Community Service, summarizes findings of multiple studies looking at the relationship between health and volunteering. These findings consistently demonstrated a connection between volunteering and good health, including greater longevity, lower rates of depression, a lower incidence of heart disease and higher functional ability.

A team of approximately 1,000 volunteers are essential to the success of the FitOne 5K, 10K, Half Marathon and Expo. From greeting attendees and handing out race packets to our participants at the FitOne Expo, to helping with set up, keeping our courses safe and handing out water during the 5K, 10K and Half Marathon events, we consider each and every volunteer an integral member of our team.

Volunteer positions are available race week between Wednesday, September 17 and Saturday, September 20.
