    Event Volunteers

    Volunteers are vital to the success of our special events. Their enthusiastic support, organization, and dedication is used to plan, organize and publicize our events and to assist staff on the day of the event. There are many volunteer opportunities available for each of our events.

    Volunteer jobs include, but are not limited to, rest stop assistance, first aid, cheer squad, registration, serving food and much, much more!

    For more information please contact Sarah Christmann.

    Office Volunteers

    Our office is a very busy place, especially during the spring and summer. We are looking for volunteers at all skill levels to help with a variety of administrative work. Some examples of the ongoing work that we have are stuffing envelopes, copying, filing, answering phones, data entry or making phone calls to vendors or supporters.
