City looking for volunteers for annual Milk Run

If you are looking for a way to get involved in a fun-filled community tradition, the Milk Run is it. It’s also an opportunity for students to gain community service hours according to The City of Kawartha Lakes.

The Parks, Recreation and Culture division is looking for responsible, energetic and reliable volunteers to help out at the 39th Annual Lindsay Milk Run. It’s a 5km/10km event taking place on Sunday July 16, 2017 and starts and finishes at the Lindsay Recreation Complex.

This year there’s a new addition, a KL21K Half Marathon presented in partnership with Jamie Schmale Member of Parliament Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock. It will begin in Cameron, travel along the Victoria Rail Trail connecting up with the Lindsay Milk Run 10k route in Lindsay and finishing at the Lindsay Recreation Complex.

Volunteers are required from approximately 6am – 11:30am to assist with a variety of duties including course marshalling, registration, water stations, food distribution, set up and tear down. All volunteers will receive a certificate acknowledging their volunteer hour contributions, a Milk Run T-Shirt, refreshments, ice cream and a chance to be part of this successful community event.
