volunteer small for web.jpgVolunteers play an important role in planning and executing Cycle for Shelter. We couldn't do it without you! You can make a big difference without ever riding a bicycle! If you or your group would like to volunteer this year, please sign up  today.

We encourage our volunteers to set up personal fundraising pages. Your family and friends will be delighted to support your involvement in the Cycle for Shelter and will feel great giving to an organization that helps homeless families and individuals rebuild their lives!
