Welcome Volunteers!

Thank you for volunteering for the 2019 Brainy Day Trail Run. This is going to be a great year for the Brainy Day Fund as we expect over 600 people to participate in this year’s race. We understand that your involvement as a volunteer is a huge commitment – especially given the timeline of our race schedule. We cannot thank you enough for taking time out of your weekend and helping us put on an awesome fundraising event. We are expected to raise nearly $20,000 for the programs supported by The Brainy Day Fund.

This page is meant to give you as much information about volunteering at the Brainy Day Trail Run, including:

  • Volunteer Assignment(s)
  • Reporting Location & Time

We also are encouraging all volunteers to attend our Volunteer Orientation at Race Headquarters on Friday afternoon, August 16 at 6:30pm. Our volunteer coordinator, Jacqueline Young will review assignments and tasks specific to each individual volunteer position. It is highly recommended that volunteers attend this event. Please email us at info@brainydayfund.org if you will not be attending this event.
