How to Volunteer at the Kearney Dog Sled Races


We couldn’t do it without you!

The Kearney Dog Sled Race is a volunteer effort from beginning to end. This 2 day dog sled event would never have been possible without the volunteer efforts of thousands of dedicated individuals, all of whom have lent a hand … and sometimes much more – over the past 20+ years.

Volunteers play a vital part in many aspects of this event.  We have jobs for young and old.  You can help us in many ways, from working with the committee during the fundraising, or helping with crowd control or road crossing safety during the races, to indoor jobs such as food preparation and concession assistance in the Community Centre.  The Kearney Dog Sled Race welcomes volunteers from all over Ontario, Quebec and around the world. Join our incredible volunteer team.


Instructions for Volunteers

If you would like to volunteer outside during the race weekend, please remember to dress warmly as you could be outside for a period of time.

On Sunday evening during our Closing Ceremonies, we serve a lasagna dinner and it is FREE to our volunteers … as an appreciation for your time and assistance.

The Organizing Committee Needs YOU!

Organizing an event of this size takes a group of people who are dedicated to its success! The committee that organizes the Kearney Dog Sled Races is in need of new committee members for the

following roles:

  • Secretary
  • Sponsorship
  • Advertising

As well as some specialized volunteer functions needed for Race Weekend itself. We meet once a month, September through May, with more meetings added in January in the weeks coming up to Race Weekend. Please consider joining our team so we can keep this event successful and keep it going for

years to come!
