Race For the Rivers photo grid


The annual Race for the Rivers event is an opportunity for the non-profit Greenway Network to raise funds for river clean-up efforts, educate festival-goers about the importance of river conservation, and get help from volunteers like you!

With a full day of races, food, music, and activities, we need quite a few volunteers to make it all happen. We ask volunteers to devote at least 2 hours to a station, but feel free to do more than one shift or more than one station!

If you’d like to volunteer during the festival, here are a few areas where we could use a little help:

  • Tear down from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM
  • Gate guards to do 1-hour shifts on a gate making sure alcohol doesn't cross the fence
  • Children’s play area (great for families since you can use it as a "base" and the kids can play or participate
  • Shore Crew to help paddlers out of the water and get their boats up the hill
  • Water Stop Crew for the bike riders
  • SAG support for the bike ride

To volunteer, please complete either the student volunteer form or the 21+ volunteer form, or you can email us at greenwaynetwork@gmail.com or call at 636-498-0772.

And if you could lend any of the following items for use during the festival, Greenway Network would greatly appreciate it:

  • 1 canoe or kayak that can be used in the children’s area to give them a feel for paddle sports
  • Support boat (to be used as a backup boat)
  • Golf cart storage near Frontier Park
  • 10x10 or 10x20 pop-up tents

If you are able to provide any of these items, please contact us at greenwaynetwork@gmail.com or 636-498-0772.
