Trail Run/Walk

Volunteers Needed

Come help out Baird Creek Preservation Foundation by volunteering this Saturday, October 15, for the Run for the Hill of It, 5K Trail Run/Walk & the Kids Run.

Sign up here…


It’s a fun event, the volunteer jobs are easy, and as a bonus this year our event will be attended by Ahman Green!  Free donuts and t-shirts for volunteers, too!  Money raised from the event goes to the preservation and restoration of the Baird Creek Greenway.  We are a 501c3 so the hours should also count toward any volunteer hours needed for high school students…just have the student bring their form and we will sign it.

The event takes place in the morning, and most jobs are finished by 10:30 a.m. or so. 

Volunteer Job Choices:

  • Route Monitor
  • Packet Distribution
  • Kids’ Run Administrator
  • Snack Set-up and Distribution
  • Parking

Thanks in advance for your help!  Please call BCPF at 920-328-3505 if you have any questions or email us at
