Shelter’s Vertical Rush is back and with it we are looking for enthusiastic, passionate volunteers with a can-do attitude who are interested in working behind the scenes at an award winning, charity event.

Vertical Rush is the original tower running challenge, and now in its 9th year is looking to be bigger and better than ever with 1000 participants taking on a gruelling 932 steps to raise a whopping £300, 000 to help families in Britain facing bad housing and homelessness.

Events like this simply can’t happen without the dedication and support of on the day volunteers, and we need you to help make sure the event runs smoothly and make it a day to remember.

Roles will be allocated at random and all volunteers will receive a unique Vertical Rush volunteer uniform to wear on the day. It’s a fantastic opportunity to experience an event like no other and will help develop your team working and organisation skills all while helping out for a good cause.

If you’re interested and want to get involved, just drop an email to Rebecca Targett in our Events Team on

We can’t wait to welcome you to TEAM SHELTER!
