Rebound appealing for volunteers

Help needed for June 11 'Dirty Dash' in Canatara Park

There are numerous opportunities for volunteering at this year's "Dirty Dash" event, which supports the work of Rebound Sarnia-Lambton. Pictured is Marty Vanos manning a fire hose for one of the mud pits, at last year’s event. Photo courtesy of Edward Allen.

Sarnia-Lambton Rebound is gearing up for its second annual Dirty Dash on June 11 but the organization could use some help.

A call for volunteers for the now sold-out 5-kilometre “mud run” is underway, says Jack Poirier, fund development and marketing coordinator.

All money raised at the event will support Rebound and the 20 programs it provides to youth and families across Lambton County.

“We are in desperate need of volunteers for the event,” said Poirier. “Even though the event is sold out, you can still take part as a volunteer. This is an exciting way to take part in a great community event.”

All volunteers will receive a t-shirt and get to experience one of Sarnia’s premiere attractions.

“It’s a great opportunity for high school students looking to get in some volunteer hours as well,” added Poirier. “Every volunteer who pledges at least a four hour commitment can opt to run the course at the end of the event.”

More information on volunteer opportunities is available by calling (519) 344-2841 or by e-mail:
