The Allstate Hot Chocolate 5K/15K race will take place on Saturday April 27th in Prospect Park, Brooklyn from 5:30 am - 11:30 am.  Make-A-Wish Metro New York will receive a $15,000 donation if we can fill the 50 volunteer spots.  Volunteers must register before April 15th.

We need Brooklyn volunteers to help celebrate and congratulate thousands of runners as they participate in America’s Sweetest Race!  Volunteers will distribute of variety of different items including finish line medals, water, Nuun, and of course, sweet chocolate treats.  Do you have friends and family who would like to volunteer? Anyone can help! (must be 18 years old to volunteer)

Volunteers will be assigned to one of three locations:

  • Post Race Party where runners retrieve a finisher’s mug filled with hot chocolate and chocolate fondue
  • Make-A-Wish Mile Aid Station where runners can refuel with different hydration items and tasty sweet snacks
  • Finish Line where runners in the 15K will receive their medals

Cheering and enthusiasm are strongly encouraged to motivate participants and increase the fun!  All volunteers will receive an email 10 days before the race with the exact details and location of their volunteer assignment.
