You Can Ride 2 Volunteer Signup

2020 administrative support and behind the scenes therapist volunteers

We need help from volunteers with some "behind the scenes" tasks to make sure we are ready for the Fitting Days on March 14 and April 4, 2020. More kids with more complex needs want to borrow bikes, and we have a high number of bikes that aren't a perfect fit. For us to find solutions for these children, we need volunteers to help with a number of activities between now and the middle of March. Many of the jobs don't require any specialized skills and only a few hours of your time. If you're a parent of a child in the program, you can be a big help inventorying parts, setting up files, or locating bikes for the therapists and mechanics. Administrative volunteer tasks where we could use your help are listed below, by date. If you have any questions prior to registering please contact Brian, Program Coordinator, at info@youcanride2.ca
