Volunteers are still needed for the 2014 Credit Union SacTown Ten-Mile Run, happening April 6 in Sacramento!

The event relies on the assistance of hundreds of volunteers to help with logistics to make this event run smoothly and the runners’ experience memorable, comfortable, and safe. No experience is necessary, just a willingness to help out.

Among the possible volunteer opportunities are working on a relay exchange location, acting as a course monitor, manning a fluid station, and giving out finisher t-shirts.

Volunteers can sign up by simply sending an email to either Sherry Cordonnier at scordonnier@traviscu.org or Linda White at lwhite@unitedhealthcu.org.
