Cheer Squad Volunteer

Alzheimer’s Research UK is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join our awesome Cheer Squad at the Great North Run on Sunday 11 September 2022.


Starting and finishing in Newcastle, our #TeamARUK runners will be taking on the iconic Great North Run and we need you, your family and friends to whoop and cheer as loud as you can to support our them along the course route. Join the buzzing atmosphere on race day and give our runners a vital boost as they go past, encouraging them to keep going and helping them to achieve their goal.


We’ll provide you with all the materials you require including tambourines, whistles and orange accessories to make you stand out in the crowd! Your support will make a massive difference to our runners and encourage them to reach their targets.
