With a little over a week until the 42nd running of the Lilac Bloomsday Run, organizers are eagerly seeking additional volunteers to help with the start line, water aid, Marmot March (face painters), and T-shirt distribution on race weekend. Details are available by clicking the Volunteers button on the left side of the Bloomsday website, and then selecting the appropriate category on the drop down menu.
“The success of Bloomsday is totally dependent on the support of nearly 5,000 volunteers,” said Bloomsday Race Director Don Kardong. “Most of our volunteer positions don’t require much, if any, prior experience, but it’s crucial that we fill all open positions to make sure things proceed smoothly before, during and after the run.”
Those interested in helping will find details in the "Latest News" section of Bloomsday's home page: https://www.bloomsdayrun.org.
