Below is an email from Wendy, the RW24 volunteer coordinator. If you missed registering this year before the race quickly reached it’s 600 person capacity in just one weekend, I highly recommend getting involved and volunteering in this great community event.
“Hello friends, family and neighbors!
Whoo Hoo! Another RW24 is just over a month away! I hope that you all will be able to join us again and volunteer. Momentum from last year is powering us forward into another amazing day of racing, block parties, community and surprises.
My name is Wendy Mesich and I am coordinating all you fantastic volunteers again. There are five main volunteer opportunities that could use hundreds of volunteers, they are listed below and on the volunteer form.
If you have some other great idea for the event, or a specific skill you want to utilize let me know and I will get you in contact with the organizer who can work with you. We will have a general volunteer meeting closer to the race date. Until then keep your questions and energy coming!
