This is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year. We receive grant funds from the CLR based upon the number of volunteers we provide. You can help support LPRD by signing-up for a shift and have a little fun at the same time! Without volunteers, the race would not be successful, and we very much appreciate you volunteering on our behalf. Your time spent directing traffic, vans and runners at each exchange point will help our organization raise funds for our Youth and Adult Programs.
The dates for this year’s relay are Friday, August 3rd and Saturday, August 4th. While we have not yet been assigned our specific posts, we can give you a general overview of what volunteers typically are asked to do and which shifts we typically need coverage for.
Volunteers are needed for the various exchange points from the Silver Lake area, via La Pine to the Wickiup/Crane Prairie area. There are Friday day shifts, Friday to Saturday overnight shifts and early Saturday morning to early afternoon shifts.
Below you will find an outline of the shifts we typically need covered, so you have a general idea. Once we receive our specific assignments form CLR, we will have an on-line sign-up process for specific shifts. In the mean time, the information below will be helpful for you to consider what you might want to sign up for.
Please also note that if you cannot commit to the entire time frame of a shift, we would still love your help. Some shifts can be split, if we have sufficient volunteers.
Most shifts will have a slower beginning and ending, so we may be able to ask you to come in late or leave early.
