Family/friends will be provided an Army Run volunteer shirt (see to the right). Military personal can also have an army run shirt as a thank you for helping out.


What:

The RCEME Corps 75th Anniversary continues in the NCR! The Corps has been given the amazing opportunity to host the largest water station during the 2019 CAR. There will be a RCEME theme to the water station including a static vehicle display and flags. Ambiance, fun, and complimentary snacks/drinks will be provided to volunteers. Please come out and support not only the RCEME Corps but also this amazing event.

Food:

There will be coffee/snacks provided in the morning for those volunteering as well as a BBQ/pizza lunch around 11:30 if volunteers want to eat. If you have any dietary restrictions, please put it in the “Questions or Comments” section of the registration form.
