Are you interested in helping out for just one morning or afternoon? Special events are the perfect opportunity for an individual or group to get involved and be connected with one of Madison's premiere events.
Interested in helping out for just one morning? The Zoo Run Run is a 5K/10K walk/run. Roo Run Run is a kids multi-distance fun run that is held in conjunction with the larger event. Both benefit Henry Vilas Zoo.
Volunteers are essential for the Zoo Run Run, helping with event signage and set-up, pre-registration and packet pick-up, providing course directions and staffing water stops, coordinating the Roo Run Run, greeting visitors, and event clean-up.
This long-time Madison tradition continues to provide area families and children with a safe and fun place to enjoy free trick or treating, strolling entertainment, and other family-friendly activities.
Volunteers set the stage in the days leading up to the event by carving pumpkins and decorating the Zoo. On event day, help with event set-up and clean-up, greet visitors at the gate, provide directions, help in the activity tent or with the bounce house, or do face painting.
Volunteer positions for this event tend to fill early, so please let us know a couple months ahead if you are hoping to get your group involved in volunteering at Halloween at the Zoo.
