Dear Members of the Tufts Community:
I am happy to announce that the time has arrived to sign up to volunteer with Tufts at the 2017 Boston Marathon.
As in previous years, the Boston Athletic Association (BAA) has allotted Tufts an exclusive number of volunteer spots on Marathon Monday, April 17, 2017. Volunteering at the Marathon is a great opportunity to participate in this historic Boston tradition. Your service on race day provides all runners, including your fellow Jumbos, with the support they need to finish the 26.2-mile course. This year, our volunteers will once again dedicate their day to supporting activities at hydration stations by providing water and words of encouragement to runners at critical points throughout the race.
From the earliest hours of the day to the last runner to cross the finish line, volunteers are crucial to the success of the Marathon. Each year, Tufts has only a limited number of spots on Marathon Monday; therefore, it is imperative that if you register to volunteer, you are certain that it is a commitment you can honor fully on Monday, April 17, 2017.
To indicate your interest in volunteering, please complete this volunteer interest form. Remember Tufts’ volunteer spots are limited, so filling out the volunteer interest form as soon as possible and no later than December 22 is strongly encouraged.
Thank you for supporting our team. I look forward to seeing you on Marathon Monday, April 17, 2017!
