Team Leaders Wanted For The Hike Is My Therapy Charity Fundraising Event

The Price City Health and Wellness Committee is looking for volunteers to lead the team at the upcoming “Hiking is My Therapy” charity fundraiser, which is scheduled for Monday, May 2 through Friday, September 30. .

Volunteer team leaders will play a key role in recruiting friends, family members, sports teams, church groups, co-workers and more in raising much needed funds for charity. Responsibilities will include recruiting participants for the team by circulating the flyer, word of mouth and social media as well as choosing a name for the team.

Responsibilities will also include choosing a local charity from the list that will be provided by the Price City Health and Welfare Committee or a charity of their choice. The team leaders will collect and ensure that the registration sheet with a disclaimer is signed and the registration fee is paid, as well as collecting money for registration and hikes, order and deliver t-shirts to team members, and distribute and receive ride information via text, email, or other means.

Hike information will include maps and pictures to reach the trailhead and landmark, a logbook recording of team members’ hikes, photos of team members with landmarks and creating a collage of images for each trail.

Finally, team leaders will need to provide rewards, tips, and fun facts during and at the end of the event. This could take the form of a monthly draw for gift cards, healthy recipes, fitness tips, fun facts, and/or a grand prize draw.

“This is one of the most important events for our community and we really can’t do it without your help,” the committee said. Those interested in volunteering as a team leader should contact Kathy Sherman at (435) 637-5010 or [email protected] by Friday, February 25.
