Besides the satisfaction of knowing you are helping countless individuals make their dream a reality, you will receive the 2016 official race volunteer t-shirt, earn volunteer credit hours and win possible awards for being the best in your volunteer capacity and the pride of knowing you helped others accomplish their goals and make it to the finish.
