Volunteer Coordinator

jessicaMeet Jessica Swanson, our Volunteer Coordinator!

In 2014, Jessica Swanson’s life was turned upside down when her husband Ben was diagnosed with Leukemia. For the next 14 months, she stood by his side as he endured chemo, a bone marrow transplant, and entered hospice. He passed away on December 27th, 2015. Thrown into widowhood at a young age, Jessica decided to try and make the most of her tragic situation. Putting her Nurse Practitioner skills to good use, she spent 2016 traveling the world and volunteering internationally for health care organizations. Aside from travel, Jessica enjoys running, healthy cooking, being outdoors, and spending time with her Weimaraner, Ruger. Jessica is this year’s volunteer coordinator for our annual BenStrong event.

We need some wonderful volunteers to help with set up, race route and after party, etc. If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer, please sign up and we¬†will be contacting you.

All volunteers will receive a special volunteer Ben Strong 5K t-shirt.

If you have questions, please e-mail the Volunteer Coordinator: volunteer@benstrong5k.org.

Two families coming together….one community making a difference.
