VOLUNTEERING

The 48-HOUR RIDE would not be what it is without its 400 volunteers who work hard all weekend! Volunteers are friends, family, coworkers and corporate groups who cherish our cause. Everyone who wants to make a difference in the lives of children with a critical illness is welcome! 

Please feel free to share this volunteering opportunity with your friends, family and colleagues.

TERMS & CONDITIONS 


SCHEDULE

Volunteer hours are mostly structured in blocks of 5 hours. We ask that all volunteers arrive ontime, so the handover and training can be given within the first hour. You can select your time slot when signing up.

Tasks are divided into five main categories:

 Setting up and taking down the site;

 Welcoming participants, volunteers, etc;

 Food tent;

 Parking management;

 Helping with on-site activities.

Volunteers wishing to sleep on the site may do so in a designated area. You must bring your own tent and other accessories. Please bring a freestanding tent as it is not possible to peg tents on the ground.

Youth ages 12-14 can volunteer in select roles with their parent/guardian on site. Teens age 15 to 17 can volunteer alone with signed parent/guardian consent.

TESTIMONIAL

“We love volunteering for the 48-HOUR RIDE. There is a great vibe! We feel taken care of with snacks, people thanking us for helping out and asking us how we are doing. We definitely want to come back next year.”

- Christiane and Sylvie, Volunteers
