I was invited to perform the role of Master of Ceremonies for the Eastern Volunteers Annual Fun Run, providing official announcements to manage participation in the race.

An MC role for an event like the Annual Fun Run involves several distinct activities, including directing participants through initial registration and to the starting positions. In addition, there is a need to provide periodic announcements, such as outlining the race layout and mentioning the sponsors who supported the event.

After the race, the role of the MC is to encourage participants to attend the award presentations and to facilitate the transition to the official speakers. The Master of Ceremonies assists in providing a seamless event by ensuring that participants are aware of the proceedings.

The Eastern Volunteers Annual Fun Run is a well established community event, which helps raise funds to sustain its activities.
