RUN FOR AUTISM

The Organization for Autism Research (OAR) is an official charity partner with the DICK'S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon, Half Marathon, Marathon Relay and 5K. We are seeking friendly, outgoing, enthusiastic volunteers for support at the 2021 Pittsburgh Health and Fitness Expo during race weekend.

Volunteers are responsible for distributing runner race bibs to participants. Bib numbers will be sorted in numerical order and volunteers will be assigned to a specific location where participants will give them their bib number to pull. Tablets will be located at a nearby table for those participants that do not know their race bib number. Volunteers will also be on hand to answer any questions.

To register to volunteer visit - https://pittsburghthreeriversmarathoninc.volunteerlocal.com/volunteer/?id=52114&job_name=organization+for+autism

All volunteers who check-in and complete their shift during race weekend will receive an official DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon volunteer t-shirt.

Questions? Contact the RUN Staff at run@researchautism.org.
