Volunteer Information

Join in the fun of being a part of history by being a XLR8 @ SF State 5K Walk/Run event volunteer. We are in need of students, faculty, and staff to assist with event needs such as set up, breakdown, on-site registration and to serve as route monitors cheering on the participants as they race around campus. You can volunteer as an individual or in a group with your friends. This is a great way to be a part of the action, support Student Life, and earn community service hours if needed.
