Join us on Saturday, March 29, 2014 for the POZitively Fit & Finer 5K presented by Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. - Psi Omicron Zeta Chapter of Manassas, VA and The Boys & Girl's Club of Greater Washington - Manassas Branch.  This inaugural event features a timed 5K run/walk and a 1-mile fun run (not timed) through the scenic trails of Jennie Dean Park, adjacent to the Boys & Girls Club of Manassas.

 

The event is a capstone to Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.'s annual Finer Womanhood Month celebration, as we promote health and wellness in the community.  The event is also a capstone to the National Boys & Girls Club Week as the Boys & Girls Clubs celebrate opening their doors to help youth find their great futures, and meet their full potential through fun, educational and innovative programs! 

 

The purpose of the event is to raise funds to support the Boys & Girls Club Summer Camp Programs through this Z-HOPE (Zetas Helping Other People Excel) initiative.

Volunteer Opportunities

 

Not ready to lace up your sneakers for a race just yet but would like to be involved? Perhaps you or your organization are looking for a community service project? Races are great opportunities to volunteer.  Opportunities include, but are not limited to:

* Pre-Race Logistics (packet pick-up, goodie bags, etc.)

* Race-Day Logistics (water stations, "turn-arounds", etc.)

* Sideline Cheerleading! (smile!))


Volunteers are essential to any successful race. You'd be amazed how much they do to support not only the race, but the runners individually. 

 

Want to help!  Simply go to the Registration page as if you were registering for the race, just select the option for "VOLUNTEER"! We will contact you with the details via email!
