Volunteer with the Tour de Cure

Volunteering is a great way to get involved and experience the weekend!

Our volunteers play an integral part in delivering a successful event — from event setup, to supporting an exceptional participant experience, it’s all hands on deck.

We encourage you to volunteer for the full weekend to enjoy the full Tour de Cure experience, but if you can only make one day, that’s ok too. Once you register, you will be able to select your shifts, locations and positions for the weekend.

There is a $25 registration fee, which includes a t-shirt per shift, meals for the weekend, your camping tent and transfers. If you would like to fundraise, you will have your own online participant page to collect donations.
