United Way 5K Seeking Route Support Volunteers - Bike


Cause Areas


Sat Oct 15, 2016, 08:30 AM - 11:00 AM


46 Park StreetFramingham, MA 01702


United Way 5K Route Support Volunteers will ride back and forth along our 5K route to ensure participants safety, to offer assistance to a runner or walker in need, and to cheer for participants along the way. One Route Support volunteer will act as caboose, riding along with the last runner or walker. The Caboose will let the rest stop volunteers know when the last walker has passed by their stop so they can close down. Another volutneer will act as the sweep, and will make one final pass along the route once the last walker/runner crosses the finish line.

Volunteers should come prepared with their own safe, working bicycle, and when riding, must wear a safety helmet.

Volunteers are representing the United Way during the event so we ask that all volunteers be kind and courteous to 5K participants, fellow volunteers, staff, vendors, police and everyone else associated with the event.

The event will take place rain or shine so we ask that cyclists come prepared to ride in the rain if necessary. When it rains, we need your help more then ever.

Volunteers will receive a Live United T-shirt, water, snacks and our heartfelt thanks for your generosity.
