It takes around 700 volunteers to pull off the Joplin Memorial Run race weekend! It's truly a group effort. We have lots of opportunity on Friday and Saturday (May 21 & 22) for individuals and groups, both on the course and off the course. If your business, club, or organization would like to support this event, be sure to let us know! We'll help you find a place to volunteer together.


Pick the spot that works best for you, and as the event gets closer, we’ll send you more details about your assignment.
