Dog Walk / Challenge Course / Fair


We’re looking for a Volunteer Coordinator for our annual dog event, to be held on Saturday, October 1. Raise a Paw Against Leukemia has 3 components to it: (1) a dog walk with 'challenge stations’ throughout it that owners can opt to have their dogs participate in; (2) dog fund-raising, in which dog owners can have their dogs get pledges (online crowdfunding) for their participation in any parts of the event (or just raise funds because they want to), and (3) a pet-related fair, with vendors and dog adoption opportunities. Dogs that get pledges are automatically entered into drawings for prizes.

The Volunteer Coordinator will manage all of the other volunteers and their work. Specific tasks of the Volunteer Coordinator include : help to solicit and secure volunteers; communicate with volunteers via email; assign volunteer tasks, depending on what they volunteered to do; provide volunteers with a clear description of their task; check in volunteers on event day and direct them to area in which they’ll work; create a data base of volunteers; and send appropriate thank-you notes to volunteers after event. Much of the pre-event work can be done on the Coordinator’s schedule and from home.

If you love to coordinate and manage people and their tasks, we’re interested in talking to you! Most of the work before the event can be done on your time and from your home. The Volunteer Coordinator is expected to be at the event on October 1, 2016, from 9 AM - 3 PM. Co-Volunteer Coordinators would be welcome!
