I truly enjoy volunteering with Run-Walk Events. I have been given the opportunity to learn many new skills and strengthen existing ones. My work is challenging and engaging, and I'm provided with support and feedback. Being able to work at my own speed, on my own schedule, is a great benefit. Run-Walk Events is a wonderful mission-oriented organization. I'm pleased to be a part of it.

I am an IT retiree and welcome the opportunity to apply and grow with RWE. It is indeed a very professional environment. RWE allows me to build new skills with personal and reference material.

Hi. My name is Angelo. I am a full-time employee in the Tech Sector. Though I am busy, I like to give back when I can. I was able to contribute by rebranding the runwalkevents.org website. I was able to do it on my schedule, slowly, nights and weekends. Though I had already created a website for another nonprofit, I still learned a tremendous amount. And, Run-Walk Events made sure that the work stayed challenging and provided excellent document and feedback along the way. This field keeps on changing and with this volunteer opportunity, I was able to keep my skills up and help out a worthy cause.

Hi. My name is Minal and I am a graduate student at Northeastern University. I worked with Run-Walk Events as an Project Manager Intern, to put together a Request for Proposal for the Webmaster Project. After it was approved, I issued it to several contractors who specialize in website monitoring and support. This volunteer opportunity gave me a way to manage a project of my own end to end, build project management artifacts like the charter and schedule, find the candidates and then document my results for evaluation by the decision committee. I learned so much during my time with Run-Walk Events. Darren was a great mentor and working with him was a valuable experience as I learnt more about the dynamics of project management. I received a very nice recommendation letter which will surely help me after I graduate.
