Fundraising as a Volunteer

Volunteers are the key to the success of the Napa Valley Ride to Defeat ALS. Without them, this event would not be possible. From event planning, guiding cyclists at intersections, serving food and drinks, to post-event breakdown, The ALS Association depends on people donating their time and talents in order to produce successful events that raise awareness and fund the mission.

Although fundraising is not required as a volunteer, raising funds is a huge part in helping us actuate our mission to treat and cure ALS. This year, we have made it possible for volunteers to register and have all the same participant center tools as our cyclists and walkers! Our volunteer positions fill up quickly so register today!
