Early Volunteer Check-in 7:00am - 8:00am: Help us check in our volunteers as they arrive, with a smile and warm cup of coffee. 

Equipment & Vendor Set-Up 7:00am - 8:20am: Rise and shine! We need help setting up tables, refreshments, and helping our vendors get situated. This may require some heavy lifting, but we promise you'll be working as a team. 

Course Set-Up & Decorations 7:00am - 8:00am: Our course needs to be GOTR-ized from start to finish. We'll need your help marking the course, writing inspirational words in chalk along the way, and helping decorate our finish line.  

Volunteer Photographer for "Selfie" Station 9:30am - 12:30pm: Say "cheese!" and help us document all of the "selfies" once our racers and participants have their "happied," faces painted, and motivation signs written. 

Information Station + Volunteer Check-in 8:30am - 11:00am: This is your chance to show everyone how much of a Spread The Purple expert you really are! We need volunteers to help answer questions about Race Day and  Spread The Purple as well as check in remaining volunteers.

Water Stop Attendant 9:00am - 12:00pm: Runners and walkers will need to stay hydrated and you'll be their favorite sight along our 3.1 mile course. You will need to be at the 5K by 9am to make sure water stops are set up and ready for race time! 

Cheer Sections Attendant 9:30am - 12:30pm: This is an important job! You'll be posted at a key location along the course and your job will be solely to cheer our runners on during the 5K. This is a great volunteer option for large groups.

First Aid Station 9:00am - 12:30pm: Accidents happen, and we'll need volunteers to make sure all of our participants have assistance if they need it. 

Finish Line Refreshments 10:30am - 11:30am: Water, fruit, and some snacks are the perfect post-race fuel. Help us distribute these items to our finishers. 

Equipment Break-Down and Clean-Up 1:30pm - 2:30pm: Let's leave both lots A and C. Brookdale Park as neat and clean as we found it. We'll need lots ofvolunteers to help us break-down and clean up.
