We are so thankful that you are interested in volunteering for the Get Outside Mountain Relay (GOMR). It has been my goal for many years to put on a premier event that could attract people from all over the country and show off Alleghany County. Whether you can volunteer for 72 hours straight (I’m sure Wendy and I will be there the whole time), or can only give us 4 hours, we are humbled by your willingness to help out. And whether you can lift 100 pounds or need to sit most of the time, we can use you. By last count, we’re going to need around 300 volunteers. If you’re excited about helping us put on a great event, please help us again by getting others interested and signed up.
Get Outside Mountain Relay is a one of a kind relay and we want the runners to have a blast. We believe that having an event like this will be well received in the running community, and it is a perfect opportunity to show off Alleghany County. Runners will be in each of the communities of Alleghany, and will get to see some of the most spectacular views we have to offer, as well as the serenity of our rural county. They will be running through Sparta and by our homes and farms. We want them to feel welcomed and supported. You will be ambassadors to Alleghany. I know we have some of the finest people on Earth living here, and I want the world to know it too.
Volunteers will be the life blood of GOMR. It is only with your help and commitment GOMR will be a success. And we want to return the thanks. Though you are volunteering free of charge, GOMR is about giving back. When you sign up to volunteer, you will be asked what group you are donating your time for and/or supporting. Note that we are trying to help Alleghany County and the groups within Alleghany for our donations. There are a wide variety of groups that we can support here at home. The fire departments, rescue squad, Blue Ridge Christian School, Alleghany Wresting Club, the pregnancy center, Partnership for Children, Alleghany Boosters Club, Relay for Life, etc., among others are where we want to put your support.
