Want to give back to The Freshwater Trust and help preserve fresh water resources for generations to come?
Have friends running in this year's Holiday Half Marathon and 5k and want to cheer them on?

Come and support the annual Foot Traffic Holiday Half Marathon and 5K!
This is the third year of the race, with more fun for volunteers every year! Runners (encouraged to sport holiday themed attire) will start and finish at the Adidas headquarters in North Portland. Once the race participants hit the finish line there will be seasonal craft brew, hot cider and eggnog, local food and festive live music at the post-event wrap up celebration.

We need course support volunteers for this event! As a volunteer you will encourage racers as they run pass and direct outside community members to other routes around the race course. You will receive a Holiday Half Marathon t-shirt, lots of post-event goodies and up to 15 hours to count towards a community service requirement.

We also need volunteers to pass out racer packets at local Foot Traffic Stores leading up to the event. This year's event will take place on Sunday, December 16th, with pre-race help falling on Dec. 12, 13 and 14. If you help with these pre-race packet pass out shifts, you will be able to register for the race at half price!

This is a great event for all different types of volunteer groups, from youth groups to corporate groups. We have something for everyone, including early morning and later afternoon shifts!

While you help at the race, you will also be helping The Freshwater Trust continue its important work! The Freshwater Trust is a beneficiary of this event and part of the event proceeds will go towards the amazing work The Freshwater Trust does! Every year, The Freshwater Trust plants thousands of trees, restores dozens of river miles, keep billions of gallons of water flowing in Oregon streams and facilitates tens of thousands of students in learning about our freshwater resources.

Interested in healthy communities and protecting freshwater resources, while enjoying one of the best road races of the year?
Then contact us at volunteer@thefreshwatertrust.org. We canít wait to hear from you!

We are also offering a - Chinook Book - a coupon-filled, Portland locally focused, savings book - to those volunteers that recruit five or more of their friends to help out!
So spread the word and get great savings to places like New Seasons, Hot Lips Pizza and Grand Central Bakery!
