Cheer Squad Volunteer - Brighton Marathon - 15 April 2018
We would love you, your family and friends, to become exclusive members of our cheer squad team for the Brighton Marathon on Saturday 15 April 2018.
Our cheer squad volunteers are just as important to us as those taking part in the event - you don't have to be a marathon runner to make a difference.
What will a Cheer Squad Volunteer do?
Our cheer squads are based on the race route cheering and supporting all ARUK participants to drive them on to completing their challenge, while flying the Alzheimer's Research UK flag too.
How much time will you have to commit?
All it takes is volunteering a few hours of your time to support our runners.
What we are looking for?
- A passion for the work of Alzheimer's Research UK
- Commitment to be bold, loud and orange!
What are the personal benefits?
As well as becoming part of a worldwide movement to defeat dementia, volunteering for ARUK can be a good way to:
- Gain insight into the charity sector and how sporting events are managed
- Boost your CV for career development
- Meet new people
- Improve wellbeing
- Help to spur on our runners - this is invaluable to them on the day
What support will you receive?
You'll have a main contact within the ARUK Sporting team who will be able to provide information and answer any questions to the lead up to the event. They will also send you everything you need to cheer our participants on - a banner, cheering sticks, balloons and an orange Alzheimer's Research UK t-shirt. The Cheer Team Leader will be on hand to support the cheer squad on the day. Reasonable expenses can also be reimbursed - just keep the receipts.
