                               What is the Human Race?
The Human Race is a nationwide, community fundraising event that allows participants to raise money
for their favorite nonprofit (agency/church/school PTA) by running, walking, or rolling their way to the
finish line on race day. The Triad’s local Human Race is planned, managed, and promoted by The
Volunteer Center of Greensboro, Inc.

The 16th annual Human Race is scheduled for March 20, 2010, from 9:00 am - 12:00 noon at Grimsley
High School.

                                            Walking Teams
               Each year, about 20 organizations participate in The Human Race by forming
               Walking Teams. Every individual on a Walking Team can raise funds for a differ-
               ent nonprofit. However, some Walking Teams will focus their efforts and select
               one nonprofit to support as a group. The Volunteer Center of Greensboro provides
               all of the necessary forms and information directly to Walking Teams. Team
               members only need to volunteer their time to raise funds for the nonprofit they
               would like to support.

               Forming a Human Race Walking Team will provide your organization with an op-
               portunity to give back to the community in an effective and visible manner. It is
               also a great way to build teamwork, promote exercise, and improve morale. Walk-
               ing Team members can enjoy the event by walking and spending time together at
               The Human Race.

               There will be live music and family fun activities. Individuals may also register to
               compete in the competitive 5K run.

               If your company or group is interested in participating, contact The Volunteer
               Center of Greensboro at (336) 373-1633 or humanrace@volunteergso.org.
