About

We are looking for people in the Arvada, CO area to help us put together an upcoming walk/run event in the area. This opportunity has quite a few different positions that need to be filled.

1. Sponsorship/donation follow ups. Our Fundraising Coordinator, Jacob Burman, will be sending out emails, website messages, and Facebook posts to different businesses all over Arvada, CO. We will need a group of people to call these businesses to follow up if we do not hear back from them to see if they would be interested in sponsoring or donating anything for the event.

2. Donation/sponsorship pick up. Fit 2 Be Kids has two locations: Orange County, California and Arvada, CO. Many of our board members live in Orange County, so we will need some people in Arvada, CO to be the face of Fit 2 Be Kids to meet with these businesses to pick up items, thank them for their support, and/or talk to them about the nonprofit and race. Jennifer Marquez-Doughtery, Sports Director, will be making visits to CO to meet with you and prep you in everything you need to know.

3. Getting the word out. We need a people that would be willing to go into businesses, school campuses, and out on the streets to hang up flyers to promote the event. The more people that know about the event, the bigger the turnout which will help us sponsor a child for their physical activities and field trips throughout the year.
