We are always looking for people who can help us make the day successful and fun for everyone. Below are available positions we need a little extra help with:
Check in Coordinators (either for pre-event Registration (July 14th and/or day of event registration July 15th)
These people will be available at the beginning of the ride to set up and hand out identification numbers and insure that all riders have their event registration and emergency contact information with them. These individuals can chose to be involved in other positions below.
Aid Station Assistance/ Ride Support
These people will be available throughout the ride at specific sections along the route. Most of these stops include the tops and the bottoms of the mountains. They will also be present for the post ride celebration on top of Cypress Mountain. First Aid training is a plus, knowledge of bike mechanics is also a plus. Shift can be full day or partial day, specify availability. There needs to be one nurse per aid station car.
Rider Support and Transportation (vehicle needed)
These volunteers will be asked to drive in vehicles along side the riders providing hydration and morale support during the ride. There will be 2 people per car, one being the driver and the other being a medical professional. Each driver must have at least a class 5 drivers license and be a driver of good standing. Most shifts will be full day.
These volunteers will be available to give first aid to riders and volunteers during the ride. This event will not have a fully functional first aid tent but will have roving medics who will possess advanced first aid. Some of thesupport vehicles will be full of registered nurses or doctors from Children's Hospital. Shifts can be partial or full day depending on number of medical support volunteers.
End of Ride Celebration
Preparation for the BBQ at the end of the event. Set up and take down of the finish line and food area. Food Safe qualification is a plus.
We need one individual with a truck or large van to transport items from the start (Ron Andrew's Community Centre) to the top of Cypress Mountain. Shift will be full day.
If the volunteers work 6 hours or more they qualify for a letter of recognition from us which they can add to their CV. There will also be a volunteer appreciation dinner after the event. At the event volunteers are invited to enjoy the BBQ for all their hard work.
