Eloy’s ready for runners at the finish line of the 2018 3M Half Marathon.

Eloy Ojeda is the winner of the latest Nomination Contest. He was nominated because of all the help he provided at packet pickup and on race day at the 2018 3M Half Marathon. At the expo, he kept participants flowing through packet pickup after they scooped up their bib. On race day, Eloy helped stock the finish line with medals and gave them to deserving runners after their achievement. He also played an integral volunteer role at the 2017 3M Half Marathon!

Eloy’s volunteer experience spans events of all types, including many produced by High Five Events. He has a great attitude and is always smiling. His experience and personality make him a good leader for other volunteers. He answers their questions and makes sure they have what they need to be successful. We truly appreciate Eloy. We’re grateful for everything he does to help us produce fun, safe, and successful events!

Highlight on Volunteers: Audrey Loeffler

Our first winner is Audrey Loeffler. She was nominated for being an outstanding volunteer at the 2018 3M Half Marathon. At the expo, Audrey volunteered at Packet Pick Up. She helped check-in the athletes and give them their bib numbers and world-famous packets. On race day, she was a volunteer captain for Runner Gear Pickup and Drop Off. She oversaw a team of volunteers and made sure that every athletes’ gear bag made it from the start line to the finish line without inconveniences.

Audrey’s nomination as an outstanding volunteer resulted from being “very helpful and friendly.” She began volunteering for High Five Events in 2016 and has showcased these characteristics ever since.

Audrey enjoys volunteering at big events “because of the energy at those events.” Additionally, Cap10K is her favorite event to volunteer at because she gets to “experience both sides of the race” by racing and volunteering. Audrey received a $100 gift card to Jeffrey’s Restaurant. The 3M Half Marathon and its runners greatly appreciate her time, dedication, and positive attitude. Congratulations!!
