Volunteer Spotlight

This dynamic duo of junior volunteers have gone beyond the contributions of time and talent to support Glade Run. These two Jefferson Award winners have done everything from mucking stalls to assisting with camps to waiting tables at Glade Run’s fundraising events to securing grant dollars for Glade Run’s programs. We thank them for their dedication, leadership and efforts!
