ST. JUDE VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® is the official charity partner for Rugged Maniac and Hot Chocolate 15k/5k, and we are looking to support both race series with the help of St. Jude volunteers. Join us in supporting our new national event partner, by volunteering at a race near you!
Rugged Maniac is the premier entry level obstacle course race (OCR) in North America. It offers a fun but challenging 5K course, that attracts participants of all fitness levels. The race features 25 innovative obstacles, from giant water slides to flaming fire jumps, and a day long festival with music, sponsor booths, contests, games, and plenty of food and beer!
Volunteers can support the mission of St. Jude by raising awareness and securing donations at the race. The donation process is easy and simple! All you need to do is ask and encourage participants to tear off the tag on their racer bib that is designated to making a $3 donation to St. Jude. Thousands of participants are on a quest to take on this epic obstacle course and we want to encourage them to join us in supporting St. Jude with a contribution!
The Hot Chocolate 15k/5k is America’s Sweetest Race! The event draws runners of all levels, from elites to first time runners and is widely regarded for the award winning goodie bag, The chocolate begins to flow at the Post Race Party where runners enjoy music and a finisher’s mug filled with hot chocolate, chocolate fondue and tasty dippable treats!
St. Jude Volunteers will be assigned to one of two positions:
- Finish Line passing out medals to the race participants at the finish of their 15k race or 5k race.
- Encouraging participants to make a $3 donation to St. Jude by collecting tear-off tags on the race bibs.
Your flexibility is greatly appreciated as we ensure all participants and volunteers have an enjoyable experience! All volunteers will receive an email 10 days before the race with the exact details and location of their volunteer assignment.
