VOLUNTEER AT THE RACE
The MacPark 5K is a laid back fun run suitable for every member of the household. This annual fundraiser for MacArthur Park goes a long way in making improvements in Little Rock's most historic city park. This year all proceeds will go to creating a universally accessible playground in the park. Volunteers are needed for day of registration, setup, cheerleaders and cleanup. All volunteers will receive a t-shirt and access to the race after party where there will be free beverages, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, pizza and live music. We hope you can help! Volunteer registration will be available April, 2023.
