Just Walk Across the Divide - event volunteers needed

Extreme Medicine are running an event called ‘Just Walk’ from Goodwood Racecourse in May this year and are looking for volunteers. In return, they would be able to supply a reference/certificate at the end of the event confirming that they volunteered at the event. The volunteer duties include:
Seeing people over finish line
Handing out medals
Handing out drinks etc. on route

Most volunteers will be based at Goodwood Racecourse where the event starts and finishes, although some may be required to go out on the routes to one of our pitstops to hand out food, drinks, motivate the walkers etc.

Now in its 12th year, Just Walk is Across the Divide’s own charity walking challenge which allows individuals to raise money for a charity of their choice or simply for a personal goal. More info can be found on our website

It’s an early start, volunteers would need to be there by 6am as registrations open at 6.30am but bacon butties and tea are supplied! There’s probably a glass of bubbly in it for you at the end too. The day goes on until the early hours of Sunday but we wouldn’t expect volunteers to stay that long. Most leave between 6-8pm. It gets a bit addictive at the finish line cheering people over.

It’s a great event, very emotional at times when you cheer the walkers in from their challenging walk especially if they’ve been doing it for a cause close to their heart (and often worn on their chest). Our video on our homepage gives a great flavour of the day: if anyone wants to take a look.

As a company, Extreme Medicine have many years of successful event management under their belt and pride themselves on the great relationships they build with clients, so the people they put in front of them are important and it’s a great experience for you as a volunteer.
