Additional Information:


The Tour de Cure is a series of fund-raising cycling events held in 40 states nationwide to benefit the American Diabetes Association. The Tour is a ride, not a race, with routes designed for everyone from the occasional rider to the experienced cyclist. Whether participants ride 10 miles or 80 miles, they will travel a route supported from start to finish with rest stops, food to fuel the journey and fans to cheer them on!


Please consider any of the following options:



Pre-Event --  Volunteers are needed for telephone calling and committee work.


Start/Finish --  Assist in the set-up of the Start/Finish area (i.e. set-up tables, chairs, hang banners, etc.)  Ability to lift 25lbs.


Registration/Check-In:  5:30 am – 11:00 am -- Assist in checking-in riders.  Includes accepting Emergency Cards, receiving pledge money, handing out T-shirts, and signing-up any new cyclists.


Rest-Stop/ Checkpoint:  6:30 am – Through Event (various shifts) --  Assist in keeping riders in good spirits along the route by offering light snack, beverages and encouragement.  Volunteers are encouraged to create themes for their rest stops to make the experience more fun!  Great for volunteer groups.


Ride Marshals and Sag Wagons:  6:30 am – Through Event --  Assist in making sure that riders are following the route, are able to finish the route, help to make sure that each rider is comfortable and feels safe on the route.  The volunteers can either ride the route on a bike or use a van or pick-up truck to assist those riders who are unable to finish the ride.
