While most students spent their Sunday morning in bed resting for the upcoming school week, junior Isis Boivin and other classmates woke up at 5:30 a.m. in order to volunteer at this year’s Giant Race.

“My parents usually run the race, but due to medical reasons I have never been able to run with them,” Boivin said. “Being able to volunteer has let me be involved in the race and cheer them on as they pass the aid station.”

The 8th annual Giant Race allows participants to choose between a half marathon, 10K, 5K, or Kids Race & Family Relay. The races begin and end at AT&T Park and follow a route along the Embarcadero and Marina waterfront.

“My favorite part was having fun,” junior Megan Mullins said. “I got to  create bonds with people who I do not normally see on a daily basis.”

All Convent & Stuart Hall volunteers worked at Aid Station 1 where they filled up water cups, set up the tables, and mixed Powerade. During the race, volunteers handed water to the runners as they raced to the finish line, according to a set of instructions given to volunteers.

“The sunrise was beautiful and the energy the runners carried was motivating,” Boivin said. “I find it admirable that people wake up so early to run.”

Volunteers received seven hours of community service and a free T-Shirt for participating and donating their time.
