Participant packet preparation
The 2019 Bank of America Chicago Marathon is just around the corner and we are looking for volunteers to help prepare participant packets on September 20, 21 and 22. The packet preparation process is relatively easy and fun. Join our team to help prepare for the largest, most anticipated running event of the year!
All volunteers are required to register online individually in advance of their packet preparation shift.
Uniform and meals
Coffee and light breakfast will be served in the morning. Lunch or dinner will be served after each shift. Snacks and refreshments will be available throughout the day. While we try to provide a range of food items, we cannot guarantee that meals will accommodate all dietary restrictions.
Please dress casually. We recommend that you avoid bringing valuables and larger items (bags, backpacks, etc.).
Mercy Home for Boys & Girls
1140 W Jackson Blvd, Chicago, IL 60607
Packet preparation will take place on the Mercy Home campus. The exact building location will be shared closer to the event.
We encourage volunteers to use public transportation to get to this volunteer opportunity. Please visit transitchicago.com for more information about CTA train lines and bus stops to plan your trip.
Limited parking will be available. Details will be shared closer to the event.
