Katy Cavanaugh is a Professional Development Program representative and former Businessolver intern. “I volunteer because I have a passion for helping others. I volunteer for different races in Iowa and help ensure that their events run smoothly. Most recently, I volunteered for the Booneville Backroads Ultra Marathon event on Saturday, May 28. The participants in this event were running anywhere from 30 miles to 100 miles – many of these athletes were running for over 12 hours! Volunteering at the aid station allowed me to make this an enjoyable event for the participants and race directors. I enjoy meeting new people and putting a smile on their faces in any way that I can. Cheering runners on at this event and helping with anything from filling their water bottles to getting a Band Aid to finding the correct route directions allowed me to do this. I always have fun volunteering because I know that giving my time helps others!”
