Heartland Half Marathon in Need of Volunteers

Jasper (Local Sources) – Are you looking for a fun service project the whole family can participate in? The Heartland Half Marathon committee is in need of volunteers for this year’s Heartland Half Marathon.

The event is scheduled to take place during Labor Day Weekend on Saturday, September 2nd in Jasper. The events will include a half marathon, 5K, and team challenge.

Volunteers are needed for registration in the morning and afternoon on Friday, September 1st and during the race on Saturday, which will begin at 7:30 a.m.  Volunteers generally work in pairs or small groups, and children/teens can also help when paired with an adult. Volunteers also receive a free t-shirt.

The majority of the proceeds from this year’s race will be given to the Phillip R. Dawkins Heart & 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 the DC Multisport Endowment to ensure future stability of the organization and to continue in its efforts to give towards worthy causes.

For more information or to sign up to volunteer, please call the Marketing Department at Memorial Hospital at (812) 996-2333.
