Community mission

Stewarding at the Spooky Welly Walk

Help make a charity day happen



Description

This is a community mission, a community led session where you will meet other GoodGym members at the task. Please make yourself known to anyone in a GoodGym top when you arrive. As with all GoodGym sessions we encourage you to use the power of your legs to get there, i.e. run or walk if you can.

Help make a volunteer team for this charity event, coming to Birmingham for the first time in 2019.

"This is the first year that we have run SWW here and we’re so excited to bring this Spooktacular event to Birmingham. There are over 15+ activities lining the route of this year’s walk and so we could not possibly run this event without you.

Stewards At certain points on the route we need stewards allocated to ensure that the walkers go in the correct direction. You will also be a point of reference for the walkers and might need to answer questions such as where the nearest toilets are and where to get food, so please familiarise yourself with these points. It will also be helpful to keep your surrounding area clean so please make sure you pick up litter bags from the reception area. "

New to GoodGym?

This is a GoodGym group run, where we run to help a local community organisation and then run back.

New runners are welcome to GoodGym group runs - no one gets left behind. You're unlikely to be alone, hundreds of new people sign up every week.

There's a place to leave bags and a toilet at the start point, all you need to do is bring your trainers. It's free to try - get involved!
