Volunteers are needed for the Mamas & Papas Mother's Day 5K on May 8 at Dix Park in Raleigh.

Volunteers who participate in Bike MS or Walk MS receive credit toward their fundraising.

Volunteer Roles Available:

The Mamas and Papas Mother's and Father's Day 5K races are held at Dix Park in Raleigh on Sunday mornings.  We need volunteers for the following roles for these races:
  • Check-In (7:15 - 10 AM):  Assist runners with race morning check-in.
  • Water station (7:30 - 10:30 AM):  Resupply water bottles on table as they are taken by runners
  • Course Monitor (7:15 - 10:45 AM):  Positioned at a specific intersection on the closed race course, ensure that runners go in the correct direction and no cars enter the course from side streets or parking lots.  Course Monitors must attend a brief safety briefing by Raleigh Police shortly before the start of the race and then head to their assigned spot on the course.  Safety vests are provided and must be worn.  Course Monitors are required by the City of Raleigh to be at least 21 years old.  This position receives the highest fundraising credit.
  • Post-race Food/Drink/Shirts (7:45 - 11:15 AM):  May include:  Resupply water bottles and individually wrapped food items in post-race area.  Hand out shirts to runners based on the shirt size printed on the bib label.  Hand out "treats" to participants such as chocolate roses to moms.
Running event volunteers receive a race shirt.  Depending on COVID restrictions, the end times for the volunteer positions might be earlier than the times above.
