Wildflower Run Committee

The Wildflower Run Committee is responsible for all aspects of the planning and execution of the annual Wildflower Run. We are the largest running event in California completely staffed and run by volunteers (versus hiring a management company). This means we are able to maximize our proceeds from the run, all of which are directed toward programming in support of equity and education for women and girls.

If you are an AAUW Morgan Hill branch member, we are counting on you to join other members of the branch in volunteering for the Wildflower Run in some capacity. Following is a list of Run areas of responsibility. Those with an **  require several people on the committee. In particular, we need many course marshals (an easy job). If you are interested in helping in any specific area (listed below), please contact the individual in charge of that area or email volunteers@WildflowerRun.org.

If you are not a member of AAUW and would like to volunteer, we would love to have your participation! Please contact a committee chair below or go to Volunteer to find a match for your interests.
