Volunteer for the Massey Waterstop at the Ukrop's Monument Ave 10k!

The Ukrop's Monument Ave 10k is celebrating its 14th running on Saturday, April 13 and as more than 1,500 people support Massey Cancer Center by raising funds through their participation in the race, we also need your help in hydrating and cheering them along with 40,000 more runners and walkers during the race.

The Massey waterstop is located at Mile 3 of the racecourse, at the intersection of Chantilly St. and Monument Ave (23230). More than 150 volunteers will help set up, maintain, and distribute water and powerade to runners and walkers - and do some cheering too!

The volunteer shift is 7:30am - 12pm. This is a youth friendly volunteer opportunity. The 10k is rain or shine and volunteers will be asked to stand for the duration of their shift so comfortable clothing is recommended. All volunteers will receive a volunteer tshirt.

The Massey waterstop also rests along the Massey Mile, a one mile segment of the course where we will pay tribute to all those who have battled cancer. We will provide noisemakers, banners, tribute cards, etc. VCU Black and Gold encouraged!

For more information, please feel free to contact me directly at [masked] or call 828-1450. To sign up, simply RSVP, or, you can visit our website, www.support.vcu.edu/event/masseyvolunteer.

The Massey Challenge is the official charitable partner of the Ukrop's Monument Avenue 10k. With more than 1,500 people having accepted the Massey Challenge, we will together raise more than $500,000 for cancer research. To register or lean more about the Challenge, visit www.run4massey.org.

    Hi everyone! Thank you so much for RSVP-ing to volunteer this Saturday at the Massey waterstop during the 10k. It's going to be such a great opportunity to participate in the Ukrop's Monument Ave 10k and I look forward to seeing you!

    We're asking volunteers to meet no later than 7:30am at the intersection of Monument and Chantilly on Saturday, April 13. Our team lead on Saturday will be Maggie, a member of our Massey Alliance. She will provide volunteer orientation and hands on instructions for setting up the waterstop. The race beings at 8am, so by 8:30am we'll be in full swing providing water and powerade to the 40,000 runners/walkers!

    This event is rain or shine, so come prepared for the elements! If you have any questions regarding your volunteer participation, please feel free to call 828-1450. We'll see you Saturday!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
