  • Walk to Fight Arthritis Volunteers Needed

    The Walk to Fight Arthritis is the signature event of The Arthritis Society. It is a 1 or 5km walk that unites communities in supporting the nearly 4.5 million Canadian living with Arthritis. The 2nd annual Walk in Edmonton will take place on Sunday June 10th at Sir Wilfrid Laurier Park along with 22 other communities across Canada. To register as a participant, volunteer or donate, visit www.WalkToFightArthritis.ca
    Mid- Route Check Point
    Check point volunteers will be stationed at rest stations along the walk route. They will be responsible for monitoring participant health, handing out water and snacks to participants and keeping the area clean. Check point volunteers must be able to stand for long periods of time.

    Entertainment
    Entertainment volunteers will be responsible for helping with the activities that have been planned to enhance the event experience for participants. Positions may include face painting, sampling, crowd control, etc.

    Floater
    Floaters might be asked to do any one of the volunteer positions listed here. Every area of the walk will have a busy time – floaters will be asked to lend an extra hand in these areas at that time.

Parking attendants must be 18 years of age or older.

Registration volunteers will be handling money and must be 18 years of age or older.

    Route Marshall
    Route marshals will be stationed at key points along the walk route. They will be responsible for traffic control and directing and encouraging participants.
