In 2007, the “Volunteer of the Year” award transitioned from an individual to a group award acknowledging the cooperative effort of our indispensable volunteer corps, and any volunteer participating in 5 or more PPTC events qualified for our Elite Volunteer Recognition award.

In 2011, our Volunteer Recognition program expanded to recognize service to the club by awarding members with PPTC gear, free race entries, free membership dues and other forms of recognition based on hours of service.
