In addition to improving your health and wellness, your participation in the Hospital Hill Run supports many local charities. And volunteers are needed for all events: to help unwrap medals; pack post-race food packets; sort, stack, and pass out t-shirts; distribute bibs; set up and staff aid stations; cheer and steer participants on course; award medals; give wet towels, food, and hydration at the finish line; and race clean up.
There are many ways to get involved in this year’s Hospital Hill Run. Visit the race website for more information.
