Calling all volunteers!

Active Trans is recruiting volunteers for 2013 MB Financial Bank Bike the Drive, Sunday, May 26. 

For this event, we need helping hands before, during and after the event–from packet pick-up, to fueling participants at rest stops, directing riders along the course and helping to break down the event./

A range of opportunities await you. See which position is right for you and sign up today.

The benefits of volunteering:

  • Pre-event volunteers can earn a complimentary event registration by volunteering six or more hours before the event.
  • Day-of-event volunteers get a free breakfast and an event T-shirt.
  • Qualified nonprofit or community groups that provide 15 or more volunteers day-of can qualify for a $200 donation.

This amazing biking event is Active Trans' biggest fundraiser that supports our work to improve biking, walking and transit. We rely on the continued support and enthusiasm from our volunteers to produce an event of this scale. Join us at the MB Financial Bank Bike the Drive!
