DutiesOn June 24, 2018 the Canadian Mental Health Association Waterloo Wellington (CMHA WW) will be hosting their annual Ride Don't Hide fundraising event to support mental health services in Waterloo Region and Wellington County. Volunteers are needed in a variety of ways to support the event, including registration, event and rider experience, route riders, route marshals, and mobile volunteers. These positions will be based primarily outdoors, rain or shine!  
Event Experience Volunteer - As an Event Experience Volunteer, your main goal is to ensure the enjoyment of the riders and attendees at the event. This includes food & drink service, entertainment, children’s activities and more!  
Rider Experience Volunteer - As a Rider Experience Volunteer, your main goal is to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience for all riders. This includes directing riders to registration, ensuring riders know where the start line is and when their route leaves, and cheering riders on when they return from their route.  
Registration- As a registration Volunteer, you will work with a team to provide a smooth and seamless check in for participants. This includes checking riders off the master list and assigning a bib number, registering riders, verifying pledge form and funds, and providing riders with t-shirts, bracelets and incentives earned. 
Route Marshal - As the Route Marshal, your main goal is to provide encouragement to participants along the route at designated areas to help them keep them on the correct route. Route Marshals will also monitor the water and on route snacks for riders. Route Marshals must supply their own bike or vehicle to get to the water station. 
Route Riders - As the Route Rider, your main goal is to ensure all riders have safely completed the route. This includes either leading the first rider or following the last rider, contacting the command centre in the event of an emergency, and communicating with the Route Marshals. You must supply your own motorcycle/bicycle.  
Mobile Volunteers - As the Mobile Team Volunteer, your main goal is to provide mobile support to riders and volunteers through monitoring the route, going out to marshal stations as needed, picking up broken down bicycles and cyclists as well as completing a final sweep of the route to ensure all riders have safely completed the route. You can work alone or in teams of 2. Volunteers must provide own transportation (pickup truck or van) with room to transport a rider and bike.
