Physicians, nurses, physical therapists, athletic trainers, EMTs and non-medical volunteers are needed to help staff the medical team at the upcoming TD Banknorth Beach to Beacon 10K Road Race in Cape Elizabeth.

With more than 5,000 runners participating in the Aug. 4 event, race organizers want to make sure they can provide adequate levels of staffing to treat runners suffering from race-related injuries or heat conditions.

Volunteers can choose to help out before, during or after the race. The TD Banknorth Beach to Beacon also provides professional liability coverage to medical personnel who volunteer.

To volunteer or for more information, contact Angela Best at 272-3545 or [email protected] To register online, go to www.beach2beacon.org and click “volunteer opportunities.”

Those without online access are asked to call 272-3545 to request a volunteer application, or pick up a form at a TD Banknorth branch statewide. Also, minors (under age 18) cannot register online and need to obtain a volunteer form by contacting Best.

Professional medical personnel are needed to provide an array of treatment, but non-medical volunteers also are needed for tent set up, medical security, transporting ice and water, record keeping and other important tasks.
