Volunteer Opportunity

Dear Diversified Greek Council

My name is Michael Griffin and I work for TRACS, Inc., a Boston based sports marketing firm that organizes 5K run/walk events. We are currently organizing a 5K for the American Academy of Diabetes Educators annual convention that is coming to Orlando, FL this upcoming August. The event is being held on Friday, August 8 behind the Orange County Convention Center North Building. More information on the event as well as last year’s event photos can be found at the following website: http://www.tracs.net/AADE5K/

We are hoping to get volunteers from local colleges/universities for this event and we would love to have your members join us.

Responsibilities may include:

  • Directing participants along the course
  • Distributing water at stations
  • Assistance with timing
  • Set-up and break-down assistance
  • Staffing registration and food/beverage area
  • Interacting and cheering for the race participants

We will need approximately 40-60 volunteers in total for the event, and we are willing to make a $25 donation for each volunteer. We would require approximately 4 hours of their time, from 4:00am-8:00am.

Please find below the detail regarding the event:

Event: AADE14 5K – We Create Opportunities!
