Volunteers are very important to the success of our Celebration. Whether you are an experienced Parade Marshal or a novice runner, we need your help. Both the 10-K Race and the Parade require more than 100 volunteers! And that is not to mention the many special talents of those who help us with promoting our events, developing sponsors, and in many other special ways. If you have a special talent, we can use you.
