In Running Colour

This is it…. the last year Special Olympics KW and Run Waterloo will be hosting In Running Colour! We only have one year of colour powder left, and Run Waterloo doesn’t plan to order anymore!

Special Olympics KW is looking for volunteers for this one day special event. In Running Colour is part of the Run Waterloo Series and all fundraising from this event goes to SO KW.

In Running Colour takes place on Saturday May 25th and if you can help out in anyway with this event please let me know. Time requirement will be approx. 8:00am - noon!

You can view more details on this race at

How do I get involved…..well the first thing you need to do is to mark May 25th as busy on your calendar!

Second is to contact me:

Tannis Gayler, Volunteer Coordinator Special Olympics KW

At the moment, there are quite a few spots to fill. When you email me back letting me know that you are able to volunteer with our event, let me know if you have a preferred volunteer position/station.

I have listed volunteer positions below.

· manning water stations

· marshaling out on the course (directing people which way to run)

· pre-registration (which is Friday May 24th at Runner’s Choice from 4:30 – 7:00)

· set-up and tear down, cleanup

· Colour station, which is great fun, but messy!

· Food station and food prep

· Registration and other administration duties day of race

For those needing volunteer hours for high school, this will count towards high school volunteer hours.

Great times were had by all that volunteered last year and every year and I am hoping to hear from you this year to volunteer in the In Colour Run.
