Volunteer with CARA!

Give back, get involved, and stay connected

Without the commitment and support of our volunteers, CARA would not run efficiently which is why we truly appreciate every one of them. No matter the task, our volunteers go above and beyond to give back to the community. We are fortunate enough to be surrounded and influenced by the most selfless volunteers around. Join our volunteer team and feel the joy of giving back!

Competitive Spark

"When I was about 10, my decidedly non-runner father challenged me to a footrace across our backyard and beat me. It lit a competitive streak in me that hasn’t let up yet. Some 20 years later, I’m still running and just finished my 2nd marathon (and with CARA’s help, qualified for Boston.) My dad still likes to look at my race memorabilia and remember that once, just once, he out-ran me."
-Rachel F.
