Description

Velocity - Columbia’s Ride to End Cancer is in need of Volunteers. The Ride takes place on Sunday, October 7, 2018. We are in need of Site Volunteers and Road Crew. Both Volunteer types are crucial to the success of Velocity and the major difference between them is the time you’re able to commit to the event. If you’re able to commit to the entire day and are 18 or older, please register as a Road Crew Volunteer. Site Volunteers must be 16 years old and commit to shorter shifts on the day of the event at one of our four Start Areas or the Finish Line Festival.
