You can save a life with Hands-Only CPR

On race weekend the Houston Marathon Committee coordinates medical coverage along the course and at the George R. Brown Convention Center. Public safety officers, EMS, and over 500 medical volunteers make this one of the safest races in the country, but we still need your help. The partnership of our medical team, spectators and participants can create a broad safety net for all participants. This is especially important in the rare but real possibility of a cardiac arrest on the course. You can help bridge the gap between the time when a person has a cardiac arrest and when definitive medical help arrives. Hands-only CPR is that bridge. By watching this video, you will develop a better understanding of how hands-only CPR works.

Volunteer Group Bonus Program – SOLD OUT

The 2016 Volunteer Group Bonus Program is currently at capacity. If you are interested in joining our waiting list and gaining priority access to the Volunteer Group Bonus Program for the 2017 Houston Marathon, fill out the application here: https://houstonmarathon.wufoo.com/forms/2016-volunteer-group-bonus-program-application/

In 2012, the Houston Marathon Committee premiered the Volunteer Group Bonus Program, a new initiative created to encourage local nonprofit participation to take a larger role in our weekend of events, while offering an alternative way for organizations to raise funds. Through the Volunteer Group Bonus Program, the Houston Marathon Committee will make a direct donation to participating volunteer groups based on the number of volunteers and hours worked. During the 2015 races, 38 nonprofit organizations participated, with over $9,000 donated.

If you have any questions, you can email us at volunteers@houstonmarathon.com.
