Public service opportunity: The Great Unknown Challenge–Volunteers Needed

Position title: The Great Unknown Challenge–Volunteers Needed

Position description: The Great Unknown Challenge is an exhilarating event that will test participants’ ability to conquer unknown challenges. These challenges will require the use of their brain, brawn and/or sense of adventure. Some challenges will be truly unique and, in some cases, a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We are NOT an obstacle course event, a scavenger hunt or an urban race. We DO have a beer garden! (If you’re 21 and up.) So what the heck are we? Register to volunteer and you’ll find out on event day! 

Positions Available:
-Set-up: 7am-8am
-Registration: 7am-9:30am
-T-shirts: 7am-9:30am
-Clean-up: 12pm-2pm
-Challenge volunteers: 8am-1:30pm (Challenge volunteers will receive more position details the week before the event.)
Proceeds from the Great Unknown Challenge will benefit the Lupus Foundation of America’s lupus research and education programs. Lupus is a devastating autoimmune disease that affects 1.5 million Americans. 

Time commitment: Varies. See position descriptions for details. 

Skill requirements: Ability to cope with the unknown.
