EVENT SET-UP & CLEAN UP: Aid with any set-up or clean-up such as tables, chairs, signs, food, trash barrels, supplies and any other items.
RIDER CHECK-IN: Check in riders as they arrive at the finish line.
FINISH LINE: Cheer on riders as they complete the ride, be enthusiastic, hand out medals, get the crowd going!
FLOATER: Will be able to fill in for any of the positions as needed and will work with staff.
RIDE MARSHAL: Volunteer cyclists serve as safety monitors along the route giving general guidance on rider safety, etiquette and emergencies.
MOTORCYCLE MARSHAL: Uses own motorcycle to patrol the route. Maintain radio communications with safety and support personnel.
SUPPORT & GEAR (SAG): Use own van, SUV, truck, etc., to patrol the route. Respond to requests from safety personnel and Motorcycle Marshals for rider pick-up. Transport riders and bikes to nearest rest stop, medical station or bike repair location. Maintain radio communications with safety and support personnel. Must have a valid driver’s license and proof of auto insurance. The MS Society will reimburse the cost of gasoline upon written request.
REST STOPS: Rest Stop volunteers run locations on the route where riders can stop for light refreshments. We provide you with the food; all you need to bring is a folding table, chairs and decorations. This is the best way to see the riders in action! Volunteers pick up their rest stop supplies prior to the event. In Windsor you may pick up your supplies on Saturday (June 2) morning.
HAM RADIO OPERATOR: Provide communication to aid in the safety and welfare of all participants. Volunteers should have their own radio equipment with enough backup batteries to last the entire day.
Thank you again for your continued support of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Connecticut Chapter. Together we can create a world free of MS.
