SDHS 2018 Walk for Animals - North County -- Saturday, February 24th

ScrippsAssists need about 15 volunteers to assist with the 2018 Walk for Animals in North County. This is to benefit the San Diego Humane Society.

Where: Kit Carson Park, in Escondido
When: on Saturday, February 24, 2018.
Activity: ScrippsAssists volunteers will be helping along the 2.5-mile course to direct walkers so they don't veer off course and get lost.
In this position we also cheer on walkers and their furry friends, pass out water, and keep water bowls filled.
Details: Course-Walker volunteers are needed throughout the venue, and our shift starts at 8:00am, and ends around 11:00am, depending on where we are assigned along the course. Last year, we were at the beginning of the course, so our shift ended a bit earlier than 11:00am.

All volunteers will receive a complimentary T-shirt, which we will need to wear for the event, a pancake breakfast and snacks.

Anyone can volunteer including family, friends and even children age 16 or over (sorry, no dogs or other pets please)

Contact: Tanya Gresham at, gresham@scripps.edu or call, 858-784-7948.

If you prefer to walk with your furry friend, please visit the SDHS Website:
