Heart Walk Volunteers Needed!

via the American Heart Association — Inland Empire

Our local Inland Empire Chapter of the American Heart Association needs volunteers for its upcoming Heart Walk, which will be held on September 21 at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario.

There are many ways to volunteer:

Pre-event (ongoing) – As your schedule permits
We need volunteers to help with the planning and logistics. Your tasks may include putting together Heart Walk packets, making phone calls, etc.

Day Before Setup (Friday, Sept. 20) – Times TBA
Join us the day before the event to help with us set up and prepare the site.

Day of Event (Saturday, Sept. 21) – 6:00am – 10:30am
From 6:00am to 7:00am, we ask for “all hands on deck” to complete event set up. Volunteers 18 years and older may be asked to help with traffic control. Once registration begins at 7:00am, takes will include passing out water along the route, overseeing a vendor tent, encouraging walkers along the route, etc.

Green Team (Saturday, Sept. 21) – 10:30am – 1:00pm
Our goal is to leave our Walk site just as we found it. Green Team volunteers will help take down signage and tents, pack supplies on the trucks and clean up any items left behind.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact  Monique Stensrud with questions at 310-424-4174 or
