Chicagoland Buddy Walk

2022 Chicagoland Buddy Walk Volunteer signup+*

Welcome to the 2022 Chicagoland Buddy Walk volunteer sign up. 

*Please sign up one person per volunteer slot.  Do not put "the Johnson family" in one slot, each individual requires their own slot. 

Important Volunteer information

  • Some positions are for part of the day, and you are more than welcome to sign up for additional positions as long as they do not overlap.
  • Volunteers need to stay the entire time they committed to.  
  • We will not be providing lunch for volunteers.  We will be providing plenty of water and snacks. 
  • We ask that volunteers please keep their phones in their cars or in their pockets while volunteering for the event. Volunteer areas need supervision, and we have been noticing over the years volunteers are playing on their phones instead of supervising the activity they signed up to help with.
  • Any school forms that need to be signed need to be filled out completely and turned in at the beginning of your shift, they can be picked up at the volunteer tent after your shift is complete.
  • Please dress for the weather, we have had Buddy Walks when the temperature is in the '50s and others in the 90s. Our walk is a rain or shine event. Our location has minimal shade, so please keep that in mind and bring sunblock if necessary.  We will have some areas under tents, but many positions are not in shaded areas.

 Once you sign up to volunteer, you will receive updates from this site before our event with reminders.
