York 10k, 5th August

Volunteer marshals urgently required

We’re currently very short of volunteers to help us marshal the York 10k this year.

As one of the official partner charities, we are required to provide 20 marshals for the day (and if we don’t have enough marshals signed up, York Mind has to pay a fee. Eeek!).

We have 7 people volunteering already, but we need 13 more marshals for the race.

Please could you be one of our high-vis heroes this year? 

The details:

·         Date: Sunday 5th August 2018

·         Time required: 8am – 12noon

·         Location: Meet at St George’s Fields Car park, York (where the Event Manager for the day will explain the role and walk volunteers to their marshalling point)

·         Volunteer role: Don the high vis, make sure runners are going the right way safely, and provide encouragement along the route!

York 10k Cheer Station – Helpers needed!

If you’re not already running or marshalling (and thank you so much to all those who have signed up to marshal, we now have enough high-vis heroes hooray!), then we’d love for you to soak up the atmosphere at the York 10k by joining our Cheer Station.

This will be located opposite the Mind shop on Goodramgate.

You’ll need to be:

·         Free on Sunday 5th August, between 9am – 11am

·         Able to get to Goodramgate

·         Up for cheering / clapping / making general noises of encouragement for the York Mind runners (who have trained and fundraised so hard to get to this point)

T-shirts, banner roll and banger sticks are provided.

Inspiration is 100% guaranteed.

If you could join our Cheer Point, please could you reply to let me know so I can get an idea of numbers?

Calling all artists!

Artwork donations needed

We are thrilled to be able to launch our call for artworks for our 2018 Art Auction & Exhibition with Rethink York Group!
