Spirit of Survival Volunteers Needed!

Our volunteers are the heart of the Spirit of Survival. Without the hardworking, enthusiastic people supporting the runners, there would not be a race. People of any talent and physical ability are wanted. Come and join us. It will be a rewarding and fun experience.
