Goodwill Columbus is a nonprofit organization that transforms the lives of individuals with disabilities and other barriers through pathways to independence and the power of work. Goodwill’s diverse, mission-driven programming includes specialized rehabilitation programs, career services, and commercial operations.


Join Besa and Goodwill Columbus as we cheer on this year’s Columbus Marathon racers! As a volunteer, we'll help collect apparel discarded by runners along the race course. The gathered clothing will be sold with proceeds benefiting Goodwill programs that help people with disabilities and individuals overcoming other barriers. Volunteers will receive lunch and a coupon for a free Chipotle burrito to use at a later date. 


In addition to registering through Besa, all volunteers must sign-up through the Columbus Marathon volunteer portal. The deadline to register is Friday, October 11. Click here to sign-up.
