Hello Volunteers!

Come help support The ALS Association and the fight to defeat ALS by volunteering at the 12th Annual Napa Valley Ride to Defeat ALS at Yountville Veteran's Home in Yountville, CA. on October 1, 2016. Enthusiastic volunteers are key to our success! Volunteering is a great way to help the many people living with ALS and their loved ones, but also to meet other people, and learn new skills.

We want you to have an enjoyable and rewarding experience, so please let us know what volunteer areas interest you the most!

  • Set- Up (put tablecloths on picnic tables, arrange the lunch and presentation area, hang banners, etc.)
  • Volunteer Check-In (help volunteers sign in and direct to the appropriate area)

  • Route Monitors (help set up the route by placing signs, cheering on cyclists and walkers throughout the route and finish line)
  • Advocacy (help cyclists and walkers sign advocacy forms)
