Volunteers Needed for Heartland Half Marathon

Heartland LogoJASPER (NNDC) – The Heartland Half Marathon committee is in need of volunteers for the 2015 Heartland Half Marathon, scheduled Labor Day weekend in Jasper. The event will include a half marathon, a 5K run, and a team challenge.

Volunteers are needed for registration in the morning and afternoon on Friday, September 4, and during the race on Saturday, September 5. The race begins at 7:30 a.m. Volunteers generally work in pairs or small groups. Teens and children can also help if paired with an adult. All volunteers receive a free tee-shirt.

The majority of the proceeds from this year’s Half Marathon will be given to the Phillip R. Dawkins Heart and Vascular Center at Memorial Hospital to be utilized for new integrative medicine services provided to cardiac patients. Ten percent of the proceeds will go towards to the DC Multisport Endowment to ensure future stability of the organization and to continue in its efforts to give towards worthy causes.

To volunteer, or for more information, call 812 482-9115 or 800 968-4578.
