The 6th Annual Ben Event promises to be even bigger and better. Our Fun Walk will again kick off our Friday evening activities in the bandshell. Troy Hein will be in attendance Friday evening with the Special Olympics Softball Game beginning at 6pm. Fun Walk participants will parade around the park and lead us into the bandshell where we will recognize and honor our 2015 Ben Yorgey Award Recipients! Musical Guests, The Large Flowerheads will end the evening as we groove the night away. We encourage all of you to attend and invite your Family and Friends as it is simply wonderful and energetic, AND FREE, and sets the tone for the entire Ben Event!
Saturday, of course, offers the 5K Run, Kids’ Runs, Breakfast in The Park, Bear Swamp Derby, swim meet for athletes with special needs, Ben’s Block Party in a carnival-type setting, and Ben’s Super Raffle (formerly Chinese Auction) with wonderful baskets filled with fantastic items, and it all culminates with the Wheels of Time Cruise Night.
When you register here, you will see that we ask for your volunteer team preference. We will certainly consider your request, but may need to place you on the team best suited to our needs. Thank you for understanding.
Our volunteer commitment is typically a 2-3 hour shift, unless you request longer hours. That way you can enjoy all that the Ben Event has to offer with your family and friends. Your Team Leader will be contacting you to coordinate your individual volunteer time preference along with any special instructions for the day. If you do have a time preference and/or special needs/accommodations, you will have the opportunity to let your Team Leader know.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT! WE ARE ONLY SUCCESSFUL WITH THE BEN EVENT BECAUSE OF VOLUNTEER TIME AND EFFORTS!
