Volunteering
 
The Fun Run will be very similar to previous years. The big change will be 4 starting points (stations) instead of 1, which means we need your help staffing the stations. We also need people to track laps, staff the first aid station, and assist in setup and breakdown. Please visit http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0b4aa8a62ca6f58-bscfun to sign up and help ensure the success of the BCS Fun Run!
