The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Join us at our track practices for some fun running with individuals who need one-on-one support. Buddies are so important to help them have a successful, enjoyable , and confidence building experience. Our runners range in ability from walkers to fast runners, ages 7-25, and most are on the autism spectrum. You will run/walk with individuals; help them with drills and exercises; help keep them focused and give them clear instruction throughout the practice.
Practices are weekly, schedule can be found on our website. Sundays - 10:45-11:45am
Runners, walkers, high school students, college students, adults, all make great volunteers! You do not need to be a runner, but fit enough to manage a few laps around the track at a time. Experience with people with autism/developmental disorders is a plus, but also not necessary. Join the team for some exercise and rewarding fun!
