Volunteering with Verge is a unique and fun opportunity to make a meaningful impact, and connect with some amazing people to help them grow, be included, and enjoy running!
STUDENTS: A great way to earn community service hours!
*Volunteers do not need to be runners, but a basic level of physical fitness is helpful (able to walk/jog at least 2 laps or 1/2 mile).
**Signing up to attend regularly throughout a season is best but we can always work with your schedule.
“We can’t do it without you!”
