We’re looking for energetic individuals and organizations to provide great customer service to our Karner Blue Butterfly Family Fun Run & 5K participants.
What Do Volunteers Do?

Starting Line and Finish Line - Assist with the flow at the starting line and provide runners with water, bananas, and a finisher’s medal at the finish line.
