Volunteer Nation: 9 Events That Need Your Help This Weekend

You never know who might be watching the next time you’re out on a cross country course. Take this example, captured by Amy Dragoo at the Fair Hill Starter Trials last weekend – none other than Tim Gardner, a longtime supporter of the sport as an owner, breeder, and volunteer along with his wife Nina. Thank you for all you do, Tim and Nina! Our sport is better because of you.

If you’d like to get out and help this weekend, there are plenty of positions still available at the events listed below. Happy volunteering!

We’ve compiled some resources on volunteering with COVID-19 regulations in mind. We’ll reference this list each week in Volunteer Nation, so take a few moments to familiarize yourself with what’s new and different.
