Run to the Pub!
Runner’s World voted the Run to the Pub race the number 2 “Best in the US” half marathon in the country! It isn't an accident
that this event has achieved such an honorable status. Since 2007, Pub 317 has been putting on a one-of-a-kind St. Patricks Day 10K and Half Marathon, attracting
thousands of runners (and growing by 25%) each year.
It takes an army of 100 fun-loving volunteers to make this event possible. Are you available to lend a hand during race day on Saturday, March 14th or the days leading up to the race? We have many great chances to be a part of the fun that range from packet stuffing, packet pickup, set up, clean up and flagging volunteer opportunities available!
Your time is benefiting the community! Part of the proceeds to this race will benefit the Bozeman Area Community Foundation. It's a win-win!
Click on here and sign up today to be a part of this great event! All volunteers will receive a shirt and a free beer (for those 21+, of course!) for their help. Please contact Bridget Wilkinson with any questions.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Gallatin County-Become a Big!
By becoming a Big Brother, Big Sister, Big Couple or Big Family you can truly influence the life of a child, and you will both be forever changed by the experience. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Gallatin County offers a variety of volunteer experiences.
Discover how you can make a difference:
Are you at least 18 years old?
Do you have a couple extra hours a week, a valid drivers license and an insured vehicle?
Can you make an 18 month commitment?
Do you enjoy kids and having fun?
Big Brothers Big Sisters serves children ages 5-15 in our local community. Their backgrounds and personalities are unique, but they all have a need for friendship with a caring adult. We ask our volunteers for an 18 month commitment, and to spend 1-2 hours, a week with the child. Activities that many matches enjoy are going to the park, walking the dog, going fishing, arts and crafts, making dinner together and many other activities.

Collect data and write paper to be published in a pediatric medical journal.
Organization: Eat, Live, Play: Family-centered childhood obesity treatment program run through the Gallatin Valley YMCA in partnership with Bozeman Deaconess Hospital.
Dr. Pepper Henyon is looking for a student who has an interest in research to gather the data for this childhood obesity treatment program which has been present in Bozeman for 2 years, and write a paper to be submitted to a pediatric medical journal for publication. There is no specific time in which this needs to be completed but Dr. Pepper Henyon would like to share the experience of this program in order to spread the word about community-based efforts and hopefully inspire other doctors around the country to do a similar program. If published, the student would be the lead author and have a publication to their name.
If interested in this opportunity, please contact Dr. Pepper Henyon at email@example.com or call 579-1837
