Volunteer Recognition


Volunteer Recognition – 2017

The Frederick Steeplechasers Running Club is an “all-volunteer” organization. We have a passion for running, friendship, and community service. Our club would not be what it is today without our amazing volunteers. Whether you are an officer in the club or have come to help out at a few finish lines, we need you! There are many volunteer opportunities and this is the best way to get to know other club members.
