Recruiting Race for the Place 5K & Fun Run volunteers is not always as easy as it sounds. Honestly, who wants to wake up early (really early!) on a chilly Saturday to stand in the cold for hours? St. Lawrence Place is fortunate to have a large dedicated volunteer base. If you participate in the race, I hope you notice the same smiling faces cheering you on each year. We add a few new faces to our Race for the Place volunteer list, but the majority brave the cold every year.
