FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why volunteer for the Live Well San Diego 5K?
You can be a part of realizing the Live Well San Diego vision of a healthy, safe and thriving region! With your help, we can make this a successful event that will create awareness and help fund the lifesaving work of the San Diego Blood Bank. Plus it's fun!

What do I receive for volunteering?
Each volunteer will receive an official Live Well San Diego 5K event t-shirt.

What are the requirements I need to fulfill as a volunteer?
Volunteers must be willing to work the day of the event during the hours for the area you are volunteering for. While experience in running, walking, or cycling events is beneficial, it is certainly not required. Even if you have no experience in racing, we encourage you to come and join us in supporting this great cause.

When will I find out what my schedule will be?
In the later part of June/early July we will be appointing a committee chairperson to each specific assignment. Your chairperson will inform you (via email or phone) of your event schedule and duties.

When do I receive my official race shirt?
Shirts will be distributed the morning of the event at the volunteer booth on-site. We ask that you please arrive early in order to expedite this process and keep the event running smoothly.

Can I be assigned to volunteer with a friend or family member who is also volunteering?
Volunteers may indicate their preferences to work with friends or family members in the comment/special request box. We cannot guarantee you will be assigned together, but we will do our very best to accommodate your request.
