Volunteer for a good cause: Back on My Feet Org

We have a very exciting opportunity to secure a donation benefitting Back on My Feet.
Back on My Feet has been named the official charity beneficiary of The Color Run Los Angeles, which is taking place on June 21st at Dodger Stadium. Part of this means having the ability to provide the race with up to 300 volunteers on event day. For each volunteer we provide, Back on My Feet will receive $40, up to $12,000. There is no cost to participate, and all volunteers will receive a free t-shirt from The Color Run that day.
There are two volunteer times for the day as there are two races being held on this day. The morning start time is 8am, and the afternoon start time is at 1pm. Volunteer shifts for each start time are 5 hours long. The morning shift runs from 6am – 11am, and the afternoon shift runs from 11am – 4pm. We must have all 300 volunteers registered by May 31st in order to make this gift possible. Register here: http://la.backonmyfeet.org/event/la-the-color-run-los-angeles
Your support in recruiting people to volunteer, including forwarding this to other groups that you may know, will be critical to helping us reach this goal. Together, we can help transform the lives of many individuals experiencing homelessness. In fact, you will see some of our members and their teams volunteers running this day in their “Back on My Feet” t-shirts.
Children over age 14 can also volunteer! This is a great time for families to bond with their teens and show the power of giving back.

    Hi Volunteers and Bonnie


    This takes you right to registration. Just copy and paste. You then have the selections of the different times and they even have pre-party that is free.

    Once again, thanks for all your help.
