Goldzilla 2018 Signup to Volunteer
Goldzilla, RAGOM's Annual Fundraiser and Walk for Rescue, takes a lot of volunteers to pull off this fun event and we need your help to do it! Please consider volunteering an hour or more in one or more areas and times of your choosing. We will be contacting everyone that signs up to schedule their time and area.

We've noted in each area if you can have your dog with you while you are working. For those areas that allow dogs, please remember that your dog will need to be leashed at all times (with the exception of Agility) and must be well behaved both with humans and other dogs in some cases within tight quarters. We ask this to insure everyone's safety and enjoyment.

The event is on Sunday September 9, 2018 at Long Lake Regional Park in New Brighton, MN from 8:30am to 2:00pm

There will be onsite food vendors with breakfast options and coffee to get you going in the morning and great lunch items to keep you going all day.

It takes a TREMENDOUS amount of volunteers to make this day happen. The planning team will be working from pre-dawn to past sundown and we cannot cover everything that has to be done during the event. Please help us with an hour or two of your time in one of the areas below to make this the Best Dog Day of the Summer! You will have fun volunteering and will have the rest of the day to enjoy the event!

Thank you!

The Goldzilla Planning Team
