Volunteer at an event

Bring your energy and enthusiasm and join us as a volunteer at one of our challenge events, to support and encourage everyone taking part.

As an event day volunteer, you will be invaluable in making an exciting atmosphere for our fab fundraisers, providing support and encouragement to get them over the wall. You'll also support The Charity by raising awareness and acting as a representative.

There are a number of different event day volunteer roles, please read the descriptions below to find out more about the types of roles that are needed.

Event Day Volunteer roles

Cheer Champions

We need you to help us make as much noise as possible to support The Brain Tumour Charity by cheering, shouting and whistling on the side lines as they take part in their challenge! As part of our team of cheer champions, you'll be invaluable in making the most exciting atmosphere for our runners, walkers and trekkers!

Meet and Greet Volunteers

As an Meet and Greet Volunteer you'll be helping us in our marquee to celebrate with our runners, walkers or cyclists at their finishline. You'll be helping us to set up and provide all the well-deserved refreshments, help organise those who would like a massage (where available), as well as have a chance to hear all about their experience of the day.

Volunteer Photographers

We need photographers to help capture all the magical moments from the day, taking photos of our runners, walkers, cyclists and volunteers in action. You must be able to capture great sport and action shots and be able to attract our challengers' attention to create happy, waving photos!

We will provide a brief to any volunteer photographer of the specific needs on each event and what we'd love to to try and capture.

Please note: you'll need to have your own photography equipment to bring with you on the day.

Route Steward

As a Route Steward you'll ensure participants know where they are going next on the course, are safe during the challenge and feel motivated to continue along the route!

Car Park Attendant

We need friendly and enthusiastic volunteer car park attendants, to help event participants park, point people in the right direction and provide the first warm welcome to #TheBrainyBunch.
