The Race for the Prevention of Child Abuse is Boys Town's major fundraiser.  In the past, UTSA students have been key to the success of this event.  They have been Course Marshalls and Leaders!  I am looking for 5 leaders and 15 helpers! This project has served as a major project for management courses or other leadership programs.  The five leaders will meet in February to put together a plan of action.  The Race sends a powerful message about the horrors of Child Abuse and Neglect -  Your support can make a difference in the lives of many children.

Give Pulse Volunteers!
ARE YOU READY to VOLUNTEER! The RACE for the PREVENTION of CHILD ABUSE is this Saturday, April 2nd! It is important that you arrive no later than 6:30am. Please park in the Valero Parking Garage. If you plan on using your bike on the trails... please bring it.
Once you park, please go to the covered basketball courts and sign in at the Volunteer Table. This is where you will receive your assignment and shirt!

It is important you know the direction of the race so you can cheer on and direct the runners. Your smiles and enthusiasm is much needed!

Thanks so much for supporting Boys Town and the Race for the Prevention of Child Abuse!

Hello GivePulse Volunteers!

I am super excited you have offered your time, talent and service to help out with the Boys Town Texas Race for the Prevention of Child Abuse set for April 2nd at Valero Energy Corporation. I am hoping that each of you will be able to serve as Race Marshalls and/or Course Marshalls! What this means is we are putting you in charge of making sure the Runners have a great running experience once they begin the race! Your tasks will be lots of fun because you will be giving directions, cheering on the runners, making sure the course is free from rocks or other items that can cause an injury, call the medics if an injury occurs, make sure the water stations are manned and you get to do all of this while enjoying the beauty of the Valero grounds and Leon Creek Greenway!

You are INVITED to come out to
Valero on TUESDAY – MARCH 8th at 12 NOON
to go over the task and walk the trail.
We will meet at the first entrance near 1604 on One Valero Way- I will wait near the gates, so we can go in together.

I understand you may have other commitments, but if you are able to come out… I would truly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance for taking on this commitment to help Boys Town “Save more Children and Heal more Families”

Please alert me if you plan on attending!
