Be a Volunteer Mentor for the OBX Go Far Clubs
Volunteers are the gold of GO FAR!! This program would not exist without the dedication and passion of volunteer mentors. Mentors are with the participants every step of the way throughout the program. The time, effort, and support given by your generosity are what inspire and educate the youth to GO FAR. The opportunity for a healthier living is possible because of you!
We accept participants based on the # of volunteers for each school.

Be a Volunteer for an Event
Be a Volunteer Vendor at an Event:
Are you a small or local business owner and are interested in supporting our cause while receiving promotion in return? We have 4 events each year; Turkey Trot 5k and fun run, Bunny Hop 5k and fun run, and our fall and spring end of season 5k and fun run. Each of these events require vendors; food and beverage, music, national anthem singer and the extra flare is always nice too; face-painting, sample running products, and more. We invite you to be a vendor by donating your service or by including us in 25% of your product sales. If this would be of interest to you, please use the contact us tab to send an inquiry and an OBX GO FAR representative will notify you for further information and/or arrangements.
