Event Volunteer - Race for Life - Cancer Research UK, Blackburn - Wednesday 22 June 2022
What needs to get done
• Helping set-up and pack down the event - This might include the course, signage, banners and marquees and getting water to the finish line.
• Support on the course - You could be located at one of our marshal points, cheering and encouraging our participants to keep them going along the course, or at the finish, point handing out the well-deserved bottle of water and medal. Perhaps you'll help take some photos for the CRUK social media pages too!
