English Hill Annual Turkey Trot

Volunteer opportunities for the English Hill Annual Turkey Trot, which benefits Seattle Children's Hospital Foundation. There is a lot of administrative help needed, outside of the event.

Here are a few examples of volunteer opportunities:

  • T-Shirt Design
  • Advertisement design, print, and disribution
  • Contact existing sponsors for charitable prize donations
  • Day of event: setup, registration, race timing, raffle, and clean up
