Patrick Johnson Memorial Volunteer Recognition Program – Operated 2006 – 2013
Presented by Gazelle Sports
The Patrick Johnson Memorial Volunteer Recognition Program was utilized by KAR between 2006 and 2013, and was presented by Gazelle Sports.
History and Program Description
In 2006 Kalamazoo Area Runners (KAR) introduced the Volunteer Recognition Program as a vehicle to recognize and thank the many club members who volunteer their time and talent by contributing to the local running community through KAR events and programs. Volunteers assisting with a KAR organized or sponsored event or program or serving in a non-board functional leadership position were eligible to earn points towards a special gift and drawing held after the close of each year at the Annual Banquet.
The top three volunteers earning the most points during the course of the year were awarded a special gift and recognition. Ten additional volunteers had their name drawn from our special volunteer box to receive prizes. Beginning in 2009, Gazelle Sports served as presenting sponsor and provided the Volunteer Recognition Program awards at the Annual Banquet.
Past point standings are listed at the bottom of this page.
