OUHCOM-Dublin—CHARITY EVENT: Nationwide Children’s Columbus Marathon Medical Volunteering
October 16, 2016 @ 6:45 am - 3:00 pmFree
Students from BRI-OUHCOM|Dublin will volunteer as part of the medical team for the Columbus Marathon.
BRI OUHCOM medical marathon
With 18,000 runners and walkers it will be one of the largest marathons in the country!
The BRI-OUHCOM|Dublin chapter leadership is currently looking for medical and support volunteers to assist with medical coverage for the race. With a race this size we will have a lot of volunteer needs:
Finish Line Crew
Medical Tent Coverage
Race Course Medical Coverage
… and more!
Even if you don’t consider yourself a “medical” person that is OK, when can still use you!
What to Expect – Medical volunteers will be positioned at the start/finish line medical area as well as medical tents along the course. We will see a variety of things from a sore shins and knees to someone who collapses at the finish line needing extra assistance. We have a lot of physicians, nurses, ATCs, PTs, and EMTs on our team. If you don’t consider yourself “medical” we will pair you with a “medical” volunteer to make sure you aren’t put in an uncomfortable situation.
The race is Sunday, October 16th. We will need to meet around 7:00am and will be done no later than 2:00pm. If you can only make it for part of the race that is OK – we still need you!
If you are interested please use the green Register button to sign-up. Please include a cell phone number you will have with you on race day. We will use this as a back-up to our emergency communication system. Please make sure you have your cell phone with you on race day. Once you sign up, your volunteer captain will be in touch regarding parking details. With volunteers needed across all 26.2 miles of the race, the best parking options will vary depending on where you will be helping.
POST-EVENT REPORT: Three BRI members from OUHCOM volunteered for 7 hours at the Nationwide Children’s Columbus Marathon. Each student helped assist the medical teams on the course and at the finish line medical tent.
