Volunteers are so special to the American Diabetes Association and every hour you give makes a major impact. This year, the Tour de Cure has expanded to include a ride, run and a walk so even more volunteers are needed.
Volunteers are really the backbone of the event and help to make the day exceptional. We would love for you to become part of this dynamic, passionate and fun group of people that volunteer together at this event.
Some examples of volunteer opportunities available:
Registration Volunteers: 5:30 AM to 11:30 AM
Come help us check everyone in—collect funds raised, hand out bibs and get waivers signed!
Need: 6 volunteers

Support and Gear Vehicles: 7 AM to 2 PM
Have a large car, SUV or bike rack? We NEED YOU!
