Volunteer Groups

We can use all the helping hands we can for the Life Time Turkey Trot Chicago 5K & 8K and Plymouth Rock Ramble Kids Race. If you invite a group larger than 10 people we are able to offer a donation to a non-profit of your choice! School clubs, sports teams, or non-profits interested in fundraising can reach out to our volunteer coordinator HERE. We’ll find a good fit for a group of any size!
