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.
Please join us and volunteer for the 9th Annual ONEHOPE ACT Today for Military Families 5k/10k Run/Walk & Family Festival on Saturday, April 20, 2019 at Tecolote Shores Park in Mission Bay, San Diego. This event is a crowd favorite and supports military families impacted with autism.
Did you know? One in 59 children has a diagnosis of autism. Families impacted by this disorder endure lifelong financial and emotional challenges. These hardships are magnified for brave Americans who serve in our nation’s armed forces. ACT Today! for Military Families was formed to help these families.
How can you help? Join us for setup on Friday and of course race day on Saturday. Many volunteer positions available with setup, tear down and cleanup, vendor load-in, parking, registration, shirts, food, water stations, race course locations, family fun zone and more.
And in exchange for your dedicated support, not only will you be appreciated by everyone participating at the event, but you'll receive a volunteer T-shirt & your very own finisher medal. Plus, some cool goodies to take home.
Since the inaugural event in 2011, this event has raised nearly $700,000 to benefit military families impacted by autism. Together, let's make this year just as special and successful for our military families.
