Eden’s Run 5K is our annual end of Summer/early Fall fundraising race that supports our primary and high schools in Yida Refugee Camp, South Sudan. 

Our organization has a 10 person volunteer Event Committee that organizes and recruits to the race. This Event Committee is led by one of our board members and receives additional support from our staff. Their responsibilites include:

  • Attending and engaging in once-a-month meetings through June 2019 and twice-a-month meetings in the three months before the run for planning and goal tracking purposes.
  • Being responsive to the Event Committee Chair and OBS staff.
  • Reaching a personal $125 fundraising goal through a 5K fundraising page.
  • Recruiting a minimum of 5 attendees through an online team, and leading those who choose to fundraise to reaching their individual goals before race day.
  • Recruiting one event sponsor as outlined in the 5K’s Sponsorship Packet.
  • Volunteering from start to finish on event day.
  • Providing constructive feedback after the 5K for the 2020 event.
