Volunteer

Pedal-with-Pete is possible because of our volunteers’ dedication to increase public awareness of and raise funds for research. Most volunteer roles involve preparation of the events and logistics on ride day. Volunteer opportunities are available with varying levels of commitment. Your time investment can be as little as four hours on ride day or you can make a longer term commitment to the local planning team.

PLANNING POSITIONS
Volunteers who help organize the Columbus event meet for about 6 months, once a month, in the evening. Some volunteers are “directors”, and others assist the directors with marketing, fund-raising, route planning and marking, record-keeping, requesting door-prizes, and other logistics.  Everyone gets a feeling of accomplishment, camaraderie, and the joy of moving forward CP research and helping people.
