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.




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 to 14 can volunteer in select roles accompanied by their parent/guardian. Teens ages 15 to 17 can volunteer alone with signed parent/guardian consent.


You are a corporate group, friends, family, colleagues, sports team, neighbors and looking for an opportunity to come together for a good cause? The 48-HOUR RIDE is the perfect opportunity!

Companies are invited to get their employees involved. Corporate volunteering strengthens the bonds between colleagues and allows for unforgettable experiences. Get your employees out of their office and come help us transform lives, one wish at a time!

“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.”
