Volunteering for Sunshine Coastrek 2017

  • Multiple Volunteering roles for our major fundraising event on Friday 28th July - day and evening shifts available
  • Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia location
  • Help out at a registration desk, checkpoint or as a route marshal
  • Why not volunteer with a team of workmates/ friends/ family?
  • Have loads of fun in a beautiful location, and help The Foundation end avoidable blindness!

About This Opportunity

Coastrek is a major fundraising event for The Fred Hollows Foundation's sight restoring work.

Roles are performed on site at the start/registration, checkpoints or the finish line, as well as route marshal roles anywhere along the 60km route. Groups of friends or work mates are able to work together at one site if preferred. You'll have loads of fun in a beautiful location and help The Foundation to restore sight.

Volunteers are the face of these events, so a happy smile and words of encouragement are essential ingredients. Some of the options include: -

You love attention to Detail – why not help out at a Luv Stop (aka Check-Point) with manual timekeeping (a back up to our electronic system.)

You would like to Sit – you could help with registration which means giving out the event bibs to teams at the Registration site or working at a Luv Stop

You want to be Active – you’re happy moving things around and lifting / moving things into place. You may be helping put the finishing touches on one of the sites or ensuring all the gear gets packed up and collected

You enjoy the wide open spaces – you would be out on the route somewhere which means being a Marshal – pointing teams in the correct direction in sections that may be a bit confusing, and being a friendly and encouraging voice. Ideally you can get to the location yourself. It is a great job to do with a friend.

You can’t help out on Event Day – there are a couple of jobs that need to be done either side of event day, like: letterbox drop to local residents & businesses letting them know the event is going to be on; sorting gear at event HQ to make sure it gets to the correct location.

You’re flexible – you don’t mind what you end up doing or where you go. You love a surprise!


Time Required

Shifts are between 1 and 5 hours in length and it's possible to do 1, 2 or 3 shifts. Most roles are on event day, Fri 28th July, except those required in the 2 days prior as described. Shifts start at various times with the earliest from 5am and the latest shift ending at 1am Sat.

Training

The training for most roles will be on the event day at the beginning of your shift. Team leader roles and selected specialist roles will require some pre-event day training.

All volunteers will receive a small gift and be provided with meal/snacks on the day.

Additional Requirements

  • Volunteers must be over 18 years of age, on 28th July 17.
  • Your own transport is necessary to access the location of your shift.
  • Come with a friend and car pool.

To express your interest, please email Jane Crouch at jcrouch@hollows.org
