The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Golden Roller participants often talk about how much they enjoy getting some fresh air and exercise to stay healthy.
Golden Rollers is a collaboration between the Ghisallo Cycling Initiative and the Conley-Guerrero Senior Activity Center in East Austin and other Recreation Centers that provides an opportunity for adults aged 50 and older to engage in low-impact, tricycle-based recreation, exploration, and transportation. Volunteers would lead the tricycle group through the area on bicycle, pacing the ride to meet the needs of partipants.
Volunteer Duties may include:
Moving tricycles from storage area to riding area
Greeting and talking with program participants about the ride
Leading the tricycle group while on bicycle through the Boggy Creek Greenbelt area
The dates and times vary depending on the location and the time of year, but are mainly during the morning or early afternoon. We will most likely have something to fit any schedule.
