We're here for you. How can we help?
What should I wear to volunteer at a NYRR event?
There is no specific dress code at our events. Our advice is to always dress for the weather, especially:
In the winter, if you are volunteering outside, you will need to dress as warm as possible, it's always a little colder at the event than you expect. Be sure to bring hat and gloves.
In the summer, wear light clothing, bring a hat or cap in case you are stationed in a sunny location, and be sure to wear sunscreen.
Comfortable shoes are recommended for all of our volunteer shifts.
If you are working outside you will be provided with a bright safety vest, a laminated card with emergency numbers on it, and a Frequently Asked Questions document.
