Volunteers Needed for Read, Write, & Rappel Over The Edge for DYSLEXIA Community-Wide Event!


Dependable, enthusiastic volunteers are critical to the success of this unique event. You can commit to a couple of hours or to the whole day. We need help with:

Hospitality: Keeping our hospitality tent stocked with healthy snacks and beverages for all of our sponsors and volunteers throughout the day.

Logistics: Ensuring the many different grounds activities have what they need, are accessible to everyone or remain safely roped off where applicable.

Ground Events: Overseeing the ground party and activities to create a family-friendly atmosphere for the folks who come out to watch and support Edgers.


EVENT VOLUNTEERS: 10-12 volunteers NEEDED, May 11, 2019 on-site at any given time to assist with event day management and flow. This is a great way to be part of a great event! No experience = No worries – we will train them on-site.

We can do one shift, or two shifts for volunteers. Here is a video of the various different event volunteer roles. *Please note positions may vary from what is discussed on the video.
