Colfax Marathon | Activity Booth Host in Charity Village

Saturday, May 18, 20249:00 amSunday, May 19, 20241:00 pm

The Outdoor Lab Foundation is a Charity Partner of the Denver Colfax Marathon! We are looking for volunteers to host our activity booth in the Charity Partner village during race weekend. Our booth is going to be “Are you smarter than a sixth-grader” themed. Guests will be quizzed by you, our host, on Outdoor Lab curriculum questions such as “In the Montane ecosystem present at both Outdoor Lab sites, is BLANK an example of an abiotic or biotic interaction?” We’ll also be accepting donations and generally spreading awareness of Outdoor Lab, connecting with our alumni along the way to get them involved. Volunteers help raise awareness about our mission to promote outdoor education and environmental stewardship; connect with local residents, schools, and nature enthusiasts; and engage in meaningful conversations and activities to inspire a love for the outdoors and support our educational initiatives. Volunteers will also accept donations from runners and guests.

Volunteers will be provided with clear instructions on how to facilitate the activity at our booth, where to park for the day of the event, and what to wear/bring.

Volunteers are needed during the following shift times:
Saturday, May 18th | 8 AM - 10 AM and 10 AM - 12 PM
Sunday, May 19th | 7:30 AM - 10:30 AM and 10:30 AM - 1:30 PM
