Volunteering: Work Not For Applause
The Benefits of Volunteering
If running isn’t for you, but you still want to give back to the community, then take a whack at volunteering.
Make a difference; every small action counts.
Not only does volunteering benefit the community, but it can also benefit you. The priority is to improve the environment around you and aid the people who live in it, but there is a lot to be gained and learned.
