The Downtown Newark Partnership needs volunteers to help make the Five & Wine 5-Mile Run/Walk a success! The event is on Saturday, March 24. We are specifically looking for course marshals to help direct the runners through the course and cheer them on. The commitment is 8 a.m. – 11 a.m. Volunteers will have access to the free after parties at Stone Balloon and Klondike Kate’s.
