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.
