Hello and Thanks for clicking on our Volunteer Page.
If you are a Volunteer already or, if you are thinking of becoming a volunteer for September 2018, we Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We really appreciate your time and dedication. A successful, safe and fun tour depends on you.
You will have a daily schedule in 2018 Cancervive Cycle Tour Booklet. Each morning you are expected to ensure your vans are stocked with sufficient aid station supplies, ensure the gas tank is full and your van is ready to transport riders and their gear. You will be expected to locate and set up your assigned aid station. Don’t worry we will help you find the right place. You will need to prepare your picnic table with all the inviting and delicious food for the very hungry and thirsty riders. We try to pick nice scenic spots for your aid station because we want to make the most of this Tour for you.
We ask that you register on the website, pay the $100.00 registration, that is actually a donation to Wellspring. Through this registration you are helping us maintain information about all 6o participants, you are signing your waiver and you are letting people know you of your role as an official Cancervive Volunteer.
A few rules, and things to bring. Pick up your support vehicle and know what’s in your van kit. Hopefully at least 4 of you are comfortable pulling a trailer. Bring a credit card as you will need to fill with gas and maybe pick up supplies along the way. Read and sign the “Rules of the Road” and the “Cancervive Participant Code of Conduct”. There will be a radio check each morning to ensure all 27 volunteers can communicate on the road. Keep your phones charged, it’s extremely helpful to have access to texting, emails, photo taking and so on. Please no smoking. I know it will be very tempting to share a beer at the last stop of the day, but if you still need to transport riders, please refrain until you are safely parked at the hotel. Finally, your booklet is your bible for the entire tour. Become familiar with the tour road maps in your booklets, they have indicators of where the aid station stops are to be set up. You will also have Alberta and BC road maps for reference. We will have a daily meeting, please check your emails for the time and location
Events: Please try to attend and bring friends who would also like to volunteer on
