My name is Meg and I am the Event Coordinator for the Pretty Muddy Mud Run, a women-only 5K obstacle course mud run. I wanted to reach out to you with a volunteer opportunity I think your organizations would benefit from. We are currently looking for a group of highly energetic, enthusiastic, and outgoing men and women to volunteer at our event when we come to Richmond on September 28th, 2013.
Volunteering at this event is a great way to fulfill service hours for the year and raise money for a charity of your choice or raise money for your non-profit organization. After fulfilling a volunteer shift at Pretty Muddy, we will donate a sum of money to the charity or non-profit you chose as a thank you for dedicating your time to volunteering at our event. We are looking for about 86 to 100 volunteers per shift, so please bring your friends! Donations will be given out to groups of 5 or more, and here is the breakdown for the amount you can expect after completing one shift at Pretty Muddy:
-5 volunteers- $45
-10 volunteers- $90
-15 volunteers- $135
-20 volunteers- $180
-25 volunteers- $225
If you bring more than 25 volunteers, the donation to your charity or non-profit will increase based on how many additional people you have. There will be three five-hour shifts on race day and you are allowed to select more than one shift if you please. Volunteering for more than one shift is another way to increase the donation given to your charity. The shifts are:
*While we will do out best to accomodate the shift that you choose, there is a chance that we will need your group to work a different shift depending on our volunteer groups sizes.
On race day, you will receive a Pretty Muddy Volunteer t-shirt that you may keep.
This year we will also be offering $20 off race registration for any volunteer over the age of 15 that would like to work but also participate in the run. These volunteers MUST work the 1st shift (5:30am to 10:30am). Once they are finished with their shift, they may pick up their registration packet and run in any wave after 11:00. A discount code will be distributed to them before they register.
As I mentioned before, I think that your organizations would make an excellent addition to our volunteer group. If you are interested in volunteering please respond to this email or give me a call and I will send you the paperwork necessary to sign up for your shift time. In the meantime, feel free to reach out with any questions you have! Thank you for your time and we hope to see you in the mud!
