Besides the obvious reward of knowing that you've made a positive contribution to your Club, Volunteering for GCS events usually comes with additional perks as well.
For example, Applefest volunteers typically receive commemorative AF hats, pins or t-shirts. Not to mention first dibs on the leftover apple crisp! Fitness University volunteers are given team uniforms (t-shirts). Trail Series volunteers are eligible for weekly raffle prizes and if they attend enough races will receive a commemorative Trail Series mug or water bottle. Mine Falls Clean-Up volunteers get a nice t-shirt and the pleasure of a "pre-clean" run on the trails with other club members. Medical Center 6k volunteers usually walk away with a nice running hat. And, Mt. Washington volunteers get to partake in one of the best cookouts of the year! Finally, at the end of the season, Club members who have been among the most active volunteers are recognized at the Annual GCS Awards Dinner with Certificates of Appreciation and Gift Cerificates to local retail establishments.
