Come out and help at our fun event, Finish The Ride/Finish The Run Griffith Park. We need your help in several areas so all participants can have lots of fun and finish their ride/run.

We have different roles through a three-day span that you can take advantage of. If you are interested in any role, we ask that you please commit to the entire time for that shift. Unfortunately, we cannot modify shift schedules at this time due to the nature of our event.

Finish The Ride/ Finish The Run is brought to everyone by Streets Are For Everyone (SAFE), a non-profit organization dedicated to improving street safety in Southern California and aiding victims and families affected by traffic collisions.

When you volunteer to make Finish The Ride and Finish The Run Griffith Park a success, you are rewarded in so many ways. First, you have the opportunity to see all our participants' smiling faces before taking off on their run or ride. You also will gain skills such as public speaking, problem-solving, people skills, customer service, and much more.

Mission Statement

Streets Are For Everyone (SAFE) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in January 2014. Streets Are For Everyone (SAFE) aims to improve the quality of life for pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers alike by working to reduce traffic caused fatalities to Zero. SAFE addresses the problem in a holistic fashion through direct education, broad awareness campaigns, partnerships, community outreach, policy and legislation, support for those impacted and other proven strategies.

Description

Dedicated SAFE staff and volunteers with a combined 75 years of experience in the non-profit sector have, in the short time since establishment, changed the face of traffic safety.

  1. Almost 100 million people reached through mass media and social media with the message that hit and run crimes are no longer acceptable.
  2. The first ever hit and run alert system implemented in Los Angeles.
  3. The first ever standing rewards program in L.A. to catch hit and run criminals.
  4. The first state law specifically addressing hit and run crimes, Damian’s Law.
  5. The first ever billboards in L.A. specifically addressing hit and run crimes.

Most importantly, per LAPD statistics, hit and run crimes have dropped by 16% in the last year.

In recognition of their work, SAFE has been honored with the Alex Baum Award by LA County Bicycle Coalition, the Deborah Murphy Award for Excellence in Advocacy by Streetsblog LA as well as commendations and recognition from US congressmen, CA State Assemblyman and LA City Councilmen.
