Volunteer with the Tour de Cure

Want to be a part of the Tour de Cure but can’t ride this year?

Volunteering is a great way get involved and experience the day!

Our volunteers are an integral in making a successful event — from event setup, to supporting an exceptional attendee experience, it’s all hands on deck.

There is a $25 registration fee, which includes a shirt, meals and post-ride celebrations on the day. This is a full day commitment from around 6:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. (exact timing will depend on your role).

 

Some of the event-day positions include:

  • Traffic & Safety Team – You’ll be responsible for managing vehicle and pedestrian traffic into and out of the opening ceremony and finish line. Being on the frontline at Heritage Park, you will be cheering and providing encouragement for the riders.
     
  • Pit Stop Team - Keep our riders fueled up with snacks, hydrated and give them a boost of positive energy throughout the 50km, 100km and 160km courses.
     
  • Green Team - We are committed to minimizing our environmental impact. The Green team will ensure the route, pit stops and event sites are restored to their original condition prior to our arrival.
     
  • Caboose Team: Rides the course by vehicle or on a bicycle to track final Rider and ensures everyone makes it back off the route safely; report any accidents or issues.  


We are also looking for specialty team volunteers for event day. These include:

  • Moto Safety Team – Moto Safety works with Road Dispatch staff and local law enforcement to guarantee safe passage for Riders during each day's route.
    (Required to provide own motorcycle and helmet, a copy of your license, and proof of insurance.)
     
  • Sweep Driver: This team drives the route in vans or SUVs outfitted with bike racks (provided). This team is a group of event support vehicles who will help riders if needed as they go. Also encouraging the riders the whole way with music and decorations.
    (Some lifting required. Encouraged to provide own SUV or Mini-Van, must have driver’s license and proof of insurance.)

     
  • Route Supply Truck Driver and Navigator: This team assists in the distribution and replenishment of snacks needed for each of the Route Stops.  The team works closely with Dispatch staff to be certain that all Route Stops have sufficient hydration & snack supplies each day.
    (Lifting required. Drivers for the trucks are needed (24’ truck).  Please notify us if you have experience driving refrigerated trucks.)
