Volunteer at Trek Up the Tower

No event is a success without a team of volunteers who are willing to roll up their sleeves and lend a helping hand.

We have a number of opportunities for you to help before, during and after the event. Please review the options to determine how you would like to help. There are options on Friday, February 16, 2018, and the day-of the event on Saturday, February 17, 2018. We ask that you select no more than one role per day.  All volunteers have the option to receive a $15 discount code off the cost of the Trek up the Tower registration.
