Special Events Management

Come volunteer at fall’s most 'spirited’ event! It’s the 8th annual 5K Run/Walk on the grounds of the northside’s historic Rosehill Cemetery. Be a part of the excitement on the sprawling 350-acre Victorian-era cemetery that opened in 1864. It’s by far the largest cemetery in the City of Chicago (and second largest in Illinois).

Monuments! Mausoleums! Scenic paths! And then there’s the eternal spirits who reside in Rosehill. Among them: more than 10 Chicago mayors, Oscar Mayer, John G. Shedd, Cubs’ announcer Jack Brickhouse, legendary adman Leo Burnett, Sears founder Julius Rosenwald and scores of Civil War vets are just a few of the souls who call Rosehill home.

In addition, there will also be a post run/walk party at Fireside Chicago!


We are in need of Course Marshalls, Water Station Attendants, Set-up and Tear-down, Check-in, Gear check, Timekeeping, etc. We will be more than happy to discuss your particular assignments and times once you have signed up to volunteer.
