The Whistler Museum Needs Your Help!

The Whistler Museum is searching for volunteers to help with our IronMan Run Aid Station on July 29th!

We’re only 11 days out and we need some more volunteers!

Once again the Whistler Museum staff and a team of amazing volunteers will be operating a Run Aid Station, handing out ice, water, energy drinks, snacks and more while cheering on the participating athletes (we also try to maintain the cleanest aid station by ensuring we are picking up and recycling as we go).  The money received by the Museum from IronMan goes straight to the Collections Department to help grow and maintain our archives and artefacts.

All volunteers are provided with dinner, are invited to attend the Volunteer Appreciation Dinner, are entered to win prizes and get an IronMan Volunteer t-shirt.  If you haven’t had a chance yet, this is also a great chance to meet our summer students!

We are back at a our usual location this year!  We will be manning Run Aid Station #10 (the final Run Aid Station) on Blackcomb Way (near Settebello Drive) from 5:30-11:45 pm.

If you’re interested in helping out, you can call us at the museum (604 932 2019) or sign up here.  Scroll down until you find Run Aid Station #10 and select shift #2.  Then just keep scrolling and fill out the information at the bottom of the page.  Click Sign Up To Volunteer and you will be automatically added to the shift.

We greatly appreciate all the wonderful volunteers who come out to help the Museum raise some funds while having a lot of fun!
