The PNC Chicago Bears 5K is seeking energetic, hardworking volunteers to assist with Packet Pickup and Race Day events. Volunteers provide key support to the thousands of participants as they run, celebrate and support Bears Care, our official charity partner.

We need Volunteers to commit to the entire shift - please make sure you are available from the start to finish of desired positions (typically 4-6 hours)! Volunteers must be 14 years or older.
