A note from Race Director and Penn State Alum, Mike Carroll:
The 2016 Dance Marathon Alumni Interest Group Fundraiser of the Year WinningFairfax 5K is closing out our 2016 event and already gearing up for 2017!
The second annual Fairfax 5K was a huge success and we more than quintupled our donation to THON this year with a donation of $11,500 – FOR THE KIDS! Thank you to all who helped to support our 2016 event!
We will begin planning for our third year after THON 2017 concludes in what is sure to be an amazing event on September 23, 2017 (save the date now!). The successes of the first two years would not have been possible if it weren’t for the dozens of volunteers that helped to make it such an amazing event, and we could use your help again this year!
We are looking for volunteers to assist with the planning and organizational aspects of the event beginning in a few weeks. Whether you live near to Fairfax, Virginia or anywhere else in the world if you have a computer, we need you!
Positions currently open for volunteers:
– Webmaster / Web designer
– Social Media Support
– Corporate Solicitations
– Local Business Solicitations
and…. we’ll need 20+ volunteers on the day-of to help manage the event!
If you wish to help out with the event in 2017 or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to e-mail: email@example.com!
