Volunteer experience

Introduction

Here at Muddy Princess, we know that it is unlikely that a mud run will change the lives of our participants in a single day. However, our organisation hopes to create a positive impact both mentally and physically for our Princesses and leave them with beautiful memories that will last a lifetime.

This run and all those involved with our organisation, including our volunteers, first and foremost should aspire to offer our Princesses unwavering support and instil confidence in each of them as they accomplish their personal challenges. Through teamwork and inclusion, we have no doubt that you will help us give our Princesses a fun day out in the mud!

As a Muddy Princess volunteer, you are agreeing to uphold and represent our organisations values. We are relying on you to act in accordance with these values towards each and every Princess present on event day, and to help us ensure that everyone has an unforgettable Muddy Princess experience!
