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 40 course marshals (an uncomplicated race-day 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 have many community members help, and we would love to have your participation! In particular, let us know if you are interested in being a course marshal or in volunteering at a water stop. Please contact a committee chair below or email Pat Toombs and Sherrie Wren at Volunteer to find a match for your interests. Thank you for your support!
