About

The American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure is seeking volunteers for event day - June 2nd, to support participants who are cycling, running and walking in our event. Your Twin Cities Tour de Cure is striving to raise $1.2 million for local diabetes research, education, advocacy efforts and programs like camps for kids.

About the 2018 Twin Cities Tour de Cure:

The 2018 Twin Cities Tour de Cure will take place Saturday, June 2nd, starting/ending at our new venue, Boom Island Park in Minneapolis. 2,000 participants will choose one of eight route options; 10, 18, 26, 45, 62, or 100 mile cycling routes, or 5k or 10k walking/running routes! All proceeds from this event benefit the American Diabetes Association's important mission: to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.

Volunteer Positions:

Volunteer positions include registration, handing out t-shirts, helping in the Food Tent, cheering at the start/finish line, hosting a rest stop and more. We're also seeking groups to be placed on the route at key turns and at a few rest stops, and we need dedicated, reliable individuals to help in our air conditioned command center and to help drive SAG vehicles. Times and shifts vary for all positions.
