Volunteering: More than meets the eye

Thousands of people around the world will train for months to get to the Williams Route 66 Marathon, presented by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma. However, without the help of volunteers, these individuals are unable to cross the starting line, much less the finish line.

Coordinating a successful marathon is a major undertaking that is simply not possible without the efforts of more than 1,500 volunteers. Volunteers are particularly needed at the Health, Fitness and Sustainability Expo – particularly with packet pick-up. During the races, additional assistance is needed at the information tent, Gatorade stops, relay stations and the finish line. Volunteers also play a key role along the course, where they make a lasting impression on the participants. Course marshals are needed to provide direction, and individual and group performers offer entertainment.

From humor to encouragement, every volunteer brings his or her own personality to the race. Whether passing out t-shirts or awarding competitors with a medal, each role is equally important – and rewarding. Volunteers at the Williams Route 66 Marathon return to assist year after year, making lifelong friends and creating moments that last forever.

Volunteers can also rest assured that their efforts enhance Tulsa and its local economy. The races have an economic impact of $5,000,000 each year. As an added bonus, the Williams Route 66 Marathon benefits the following charities.

Many corporations and organizations provide volunteers on an annual basis, using it as an opportunity to brand their company, express their corporate personality and demonstrate their local presence. Allow us to help you further your company and inspire your employees through our volunteer opportunities.
