Volunteer Opportunities

Run The Valley is one of the main fundraisers for the Golden Human Services Fund, which helps serve area residents in times of need. Each year many volunteers are needed to help ensure a smooth and safe event for the runners and walkers. Besides having a front row seat to cheer on family and friends who are participating, you'll experience the satisfaction of giving back to your community.
