FitOne Race Volunteer Team

We are excited to have a Mission43 water/nutrition station along the race course at this year's St. Luke's FitOne 5K/10K/Half Marathon, which takes place on Saturday, September 23rd. Nearly 10,000 runners and walkers are expected overall, and race proceeds benefit St. Luke's Children's Hospital. 

We are throwing our own Mission43 twist on volunteering for the event. Our M43 set-up will be located along the half marathon course, so we'll be supporting the estimated 2,000 half marathon runners (and possibly some walkers) as they run along the Boise River Greenbelt near the orange Baybrook Court Bridge. Think of it as an early morning party providing the best re-hydration service on the course, complete with food for our volunteer team, music, a FitOne Volunteer t-shirt, and Mission43 swag as a thank you for helping make this treasured community event a success.

We need a volunteer team of 20 people, and volunteers must be 14 years or older. Volunteers will need to arrive by 6:00 a.m. to help us set-up our station, and we should be wrapped up no later than 12 noon. Drop us a quick email to let us know you're in, and we'll send you a link to officially register for the Mission43 volunteer team, along with further details as they're finalized.

Thank you in advance for your help - and we look forward to seeing you on race day!

Location: Near the Baybrook Court Bridge on Boise River

Please send us an email if can join us!
