Laps with the Chaps Volunteer Sign-up

Saturday, October 19th, 2013

The 2012 volunteers did such a wonderful job that they were mentioned several times in the CARA survey results as a big reason why so many participants have chosen to make the College of DuPage Laps with the Chaps 5K an expected event in their 2013 race schedule!

Thank you so much for volunteering at Laps with the Chaps! Your help at the event is crucial and we appreciate your time. Please complete the following form to let us know what your preferences are. We will try to accommodate your requests as much as possible, but can’t guarantee that your assignments won’t change before or during the event.

You will receive a confirmation email and specific instructions as the date draws nearer. Please mark your calendar as soon as you sign up to volunteer.

You will also be asked to attend a quick 20-minute orientation prior to race day (not required). Available timeslots are below. This is where you will receive your assignment(s) and volunteer t-shirt. If you cannot attend the orientation, other arrangements can be made. Call or email Ami Chambers.

Many volunteers have run or walked the race in the past. Please feel free to register as a participant, if you wish. There are plenty of volunteer activities to do before or after the race.

Please complete all fields!
