Volunteers

KTC is dependent upon and appreciative of its many volunteers. Without them, we as a club simply could not function. The following is our way of saying "thanks". At the end of the long distance season:

• Volunteers who work 5 - 12 events (races, adopt-a-highway, track meets, special KTC functions) will receive a special KTC commemorative award.
• Those who work 13-20 will receive one of KTC's great commemorative gifts.
• Those who work more than 20 will receive a truly memorable award.

Two volunteer service awards are given yearly, the Ginny Canfield Memorial Award for excellence in road racing support, and the Allan Morgan Award for contributions to the club and community, are presented to the individuals the who best represent the club's volunteer spirit by going above and beyond the call of duty.

Volunteers are asked to keep tally of which events they work, and in July of each year, notify Volunteer Coordinator Sara Webb. Awards will be presented at the annual KTC picnic in August.

Every time you help out with a KTC race, meet, KTC assisted race, adopt a creek or adopt a highway crew, you earn a coupon. If you work an event which is at least 35 miles outside of Knoxville, or you work any event for longer than 5 hours, you receive two coupons. Each coupon has a redemption value of $5.00. This can be used toward a registration fee, both pre-registration and/or day of race. (an additional coupon for the latter.) It can also be used toward the purchase of KTC merchandise. And if you work a race and like the shirt, you can immediately redeem the coupon for a raceday shirt. As in the past, the purpose of it all is to encourage, recognize, and reward our volunteers.

Volunteers are always needed and welcome for KTC races and track meets. Contact Jill Bedford to sign up.

The Ginny Canfield Memorial Service Award

Each year since 1986 an award has been given, named for Ginny Canfield, the tireless woman whose energy, skill, and good cheer epitomized the KTC volunteer, to the KTC volunteer or volunteers who best represent the wonderful tradition of volunteerism that had made KTC great, and her husband Hal, one of the founders of our club. Here is a list of those award winners.
