Volunteer (AND Have a Ton of Fun!) at the “Run for the Zoo!”

The 2018 Run for the Zoo will be on Sunday, May 6th. Volunteer for this fun-filled morning and help raise funds for the New Mexico BioPark! Children, family, friends, and colleagues - everyone is welcome to volunteer!

What kind of volunteer "jobs" are available? We need people to cheer on the race participants, hand out flyers, provide directions to runners and the cheering crowd, keep the runners safe, be "flaggers" at intersections, and much more. 

For over 30 years, the Greater Albuquerque Association of REALTORS® (GAAR) has been a proud sponsor and coordinator of volunteers. Let's keep that tradition alive, GAAR members! And as an added bonus, all volunteers will receive a Run for the Zoo Volunteer T-shirt, which will allow volunteers FREE entrance into the Zoo on the day of the event.

Volunteers should be prepared to report to their designated areas on May 6th by 6:00 am and stay until 11:30 am. Starting time may vary by team - your team captain will confirm your check-in time as the race date draws near. 

VOLUNTEERS MUST ATTEND ONE OF THE FOLLOWING "RUN FOR THE ZOO" ORIENTATIONS at the GAAR REALTOR® Building. T-shirts and race day information will be distributed at orientation, as well.

Thursday, May 3

Flagging requires additional training and certification. Please contact the flagging captain, Josh Price at 505-550-1310, for more information.
