About

Local Project HERO Volunteer Bicycle Ride Leaders Needed

1. Are you a cyclist looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity?

2. Do you want to help our wounded, ill and injured Veterans recover through cycling?

3. Can you change a flat tire?

4. Can you commit to leading at least one ride/week in the Chicago area?

If you answered yes to these questions, please consider volunteering as a Project HERO (Healing Exercise Rehab Opportunity) Ride Leader. You can read more about it below.

Project HERO Volunteer Ride Leaders are essential team members contributing to the daily and overall success of Project HERO (PH) operations across the U.S. Our PH Ride Leaders are on the front lines of the PH program: scheduling and leading rides and assisting the Project HERO Representatives at each location. The work is very rewarding.
