Albuquerque Road Runners Club welcomes volunteers to assist with:
Volunteers are the foundation for creating an active, fun, and productive club, and are hugely appreciated for their contributions to the running community. Each year, the Club recognizes the many hours spent by our volunteers with an invitation to the ARR Volunteer Appreciation Banquet, held at a local restaurant.
Volunteer Trash Pickup Event
The November Volunteer Trash pickup event took place on Friday, November 16, 2018. An enthusiastic and hardworking crew of seven members of ARR showed up on that rather cold November morning to help with this project. Those members who participated include Dennis Muirhead, Glenda Muirhead, Katie Abbott, Cliff Matthews, Richard J. Harris, Chuck Fuller, and coordinator Cece Niemczyk. There was no shortage of trash on the Tramway multi-use trail but with the work of our dedicated team we made a significant dent in removing it during our two hours of cleanup. One of the perks of doing this sort of volunteer work is the heartfelt thanks that we receive from many people passing by. There were walkers, runners, cyclists, and motorists who gave us the thumbs up and thanked us for efforts. Thanks to Dennis and Glenda Muirhead, the ARR banner was prominently displayed on the trail giving credit to our club for this project.
A big thank you goes out to the McDonald’s Restaurant at the corner of Montgomery and Tramway who kindly allowed us to place our trash in their dumpster.
Coordinator Cece Niemczyk would like to thank all of the club members who helped with this project. Another cleanup effort will be scheduled for May of 2019, so mark your calendars now!
