Many hands make light work. If you’ve got a few minutes or a few hours we have a job for you! School clubs, community groups, students in need of volunteer hours are all welcome to run an activity, set up/clean up, run a table, help time the race, etc.


If you have a learning disability, love a child with a learning disability, or have taught one, you know the emotional and financial toll it can take on the whole family. If you prefer to support our work by cheering from the sidelines, please consider becoming a Silent Sponsor.
