Volunteers Needed for The Color Run

Apr 17, 2015 | 0 comments

The Color Run is coming to Clemson on Saturday, April 25th, and promises to be the largest 5k in Clemson to date (over 7,000 registrants)!

As the charitable partner for The Color Run this year, the Clemson Community Foundation is seeking volunteers for both Pre-Race Packet Pick Up (Thursday the 23rd and Friday the 24th), as well as Race Day (Saturday the 25th).

Volunteering is a great opportunity to be part of this whole-community event (without having to run!), and volunteering for the event will help contribute to a donation to the Clemson Community Foundation after the race. Donations from The Color Run are proportional to the number of volunteers from the community, and funds raised from this event are to be granted back to local nonprofits.

Volunteers at the Pre-Race Packet Pick Up will receive a shirt, food, and a complimentary registration (a $50 value!) to The Color Run, as mentioned before. Packet Pick Up is not a typical volunteer opportunity – much more like a block party than actual work!

Volunteers on Race Day will literally be part of The Color Run, helping make The Color Run a unique community event, including Coloring runners and of course, taking part in the post-race party, which is not to be missed!  Race Day volunteers are our biggest need and provide the most donations to the Community Foundation– which, as mentioned, will fund grants to nonprofit organizations in our community.

Go to http://bit.ly/CCFVolunteer to volunteer or get more information, or contact info@ClemsonCommunityFoundation.org with questions.

Volunteer slots are filling fast, and filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please share with others who may be interested, and thank you in advance for your support!
