volunteering

We could not produce our events without the assistance of our many volunteers. If you or an organization you are associated with are interested in helping out please contact us.

If you've always been a participant you might be surprised at how fun and rewarding it can be to see the race from the other side.

In Memory – Del Donner

Del Donner

Friend and Race Walker, Del Donner, passed away early Sunday morning, March 2, 2014. He was 85 years old. Del has been an icon to the NOTC – one of the oldest, active, competitive race walkers for many years. NOTC member since the mid 1990's, he participated in hundreds of races including marathons throughout 2012 – winning Overall, Age Group, and Grand Prix Awards. Del also volunteered at our races toting his fold-up stool and handing out Elmer's Chee Wees. He was our liaison to Elmer's – picking up and delivering to the races. Del served on the NOTC Board of Directors for several years as an elected/appointed Board Member. He will be sadly missed by all.

God Bless you, Del – Rest in Peace.
