Volunteer with The Color Run!


We're looking for awesome volunteers to help make The Color Run possible in Champaign-Urbana! This is a fun, untimed 5k run where runners start the race clean and finish covered in colors! Volunteers age 14 and older are needed to help with all aspects of the race. There are both clean and colorful jobs available, and the event is GREAT for group volunteering.


ECL Team Projects 2013

 Each year the United Way staff looks forward to October for several reasons: visiting with over 17,000 community members during workplace campaign presentations, the Campus Chairtable Fund Drive is in full swing, and the trees are putting on a show across the street at West Side Park.


Emerging Community Leaders hosting two events November 3

Teams of 6-8 Emerging Community Leaders (ECL) class members have collaborated on group projects in the areas of Education, Housing & Homelessness, and Access to Healthcare. These events are the culmination of some of these ECL projects. They have volunteered many hours to make these projects successful and we are so proud of their work! Learn more about ECL.
