Volunteer for Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon, support a good cause, and fundraise for W.O.M.A.N., Inc. all at the same time!

The second annual Rock ‘n’ Roll San Francisco Half Marathon is coming to the City by the Bay this Sunday, April 6, 2014.   Runners from around the world will be traveling here to participate and volunteers are needed to come out in force to support the race.   W.O.M.A.N., Inc. has been given a great opportunity to raise money by referring volunteers to support the race crew.

Not a runner or walker or maybe you just won’t be running this race? You can still be a part of the fun! Volunteers are needed to assist with every aspect of the event and W.O.M.A.N., Inc. has reserved volunteer positions at two shifts to allow for fundraising.

Team up with your friends or family and make it an experience you won’t forget!
