Run for Science without actually running!
Like any dedicated Nature Museum supporter, you probably already know that our annual Run for Science 5K is coming up on September 21st. But if you’re anything like me, you get winded just thinking about running five thousand kilometers.
I have good news for you. You don’t actually have to run in the Run for Science to show your support! While the runners get all the glory, there are lots of folks behind the scenes who make this race possible. They’re volunteers.
Volunteers station themselves along the race route, cheering on runners and handing out much-needed cups of water. They keep runners’ bags safe at the gear check station. They make sure everyone is properly checked in and ready to run. And they do all this because they support the Nature Museum and our science education programs.
These volunteers know that working behind the scenes is equally important as the actual running of the race. Each year volunteers and runners come together to raise funds for the Nature Museum’s science education programs, and they have a blast doing it.
If you’d like to be part of the volunteer team, let me know in the comments section. We’d love to have you!
