The following message was passed along by CHC member, Ruth Skuly:

Good afternoon,

My name is Sara Borse and I am the Volunteer Coordinator at the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes.  We are partnering with the Cleveland Hiking Club to lead and assist with some of the hikes for our annual Hike and Run on Sunday, September 17.  I wanted to reach out to the club to see if any members would also like to volunteer at the Hike and Run this year. The event includes a 1 mile fun run, 5k, 10k, and 4 hikes of varying lengths. 

Many of our volunteer positions start at 8:15am.  Volunteer positions include hike sweeps (these volunteers walk behind the hikers, keep the group together, and assist with road crossings.) We also have route monitor, and water station volunteer positions. We do have 2 water stations this year.  Water station #1 needs 4 volunteers and water station #2 needs 2 volunteers.  I’m happy to group volunteers together for these water stations or I can pair up 2 volunteers that would like to volunteer together for the hike sweep positions.

Hike Options
1-2 Mile Pet-Friendly Family Hike Through the Nature Center (1 hike sweep needed)
4 Mile Rim of the Gorge Hike (2 hike sweeps needed)
2-3 Mile Botany Hike (2 hike sweeps needed)
5-6 Mile Gorge Hike (2 hike sweeps needed)

We also have other volunteer positions that start at 6:45am such as registration assistants and way finders.

Here’s the link to the volunteer registration form.  Feel free to share the link with your friends and family.  Special event volunteers, ages 13 and up can participate.

For more information, here is the link to the Hike and Run page

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
