5. Jaguar Jog 2017 Co-Chair Volunteer Request
Hi all! Looking for someone to shadow/co-chair the 2017 Jaguar Jog. The planning has already begun and we need your help!
This co-chair position will then lead to chairing the jog the following year with a new co-chair to shadow you.
Please contact Karrie Donat (email@example.com) or Carla Giannelli (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested and to find out the details of what is needed.
The Jaguar Jog is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year and it cannot be done without the help of many volunteers!
WE appreciate your help!
