Ride to Conquer Cancer - Medical Volunteer Opportunity

Location: 
Other
Closing date: 
May 16, 2014
Job Description: 

 The Ride, occurring over June 14th & 15th, 2014, is an epic 2 day cycling journey from Vancouver to Seattle. During this amazing weekend, thousands join together to Ride in the battle against cancer.  Currently we are in need of Medical Volunteers to assist our Riders. I’m contacting the Lifesaving Society in the hopes that we can work together to disseminate information about our Medical Volunteer opportunities and work together to make this year more successful than any other in our mission to conquer cancer.

Presently, we are recruiting Medical Volunteers to join our crew team. The Medical Crew Team are comprised of a variety of medical professionals, and students. This team provides all first-aid medical services to participants at Opening Ceremonies, Camp and Closing Ceremonies, and will provide emergency service where necessary until local EMS/Paramedics arrive on scene. The Medical Crew are dedicated volunteers who commit their entire weekend to helping support the cyclists through their journey.

Volunteering as part of the Crew you get to be a part of the whole weekend and camp out at the event (in Mount Vernon, WA) with the Riders. Crew Members also get the same perks as the Riders do including:  Hot Meals, Overnight Tent accommodation, Live Entertainment at Camp and access to the Massage & Yoga Tents!  

Our Volunteers are rewarded by knowing how much their efforts mean to the thousands of men and women who are embarking their cancer-conquering journey. Joining the Medical Team is an amazing teambuilding opportunity and a chance to be involved in an important community event. If this volunteer opportunity sounds appealing, we would love the chance to work in partnership with the Lifesaving Society andI would be happy to discuss the weekend, and accommodation in more detail with you. We believe that with the Lifesaving Society’s involvementwould contribute to better organization, spirit and a sense of community within the event. We want to build an incredible Medical Team that will inspire our Riders and make them feel great about the contribution they are making towards a cancer-free future.  With your teams expertise in First Aid Training we know we can get the job done. Any commitment to this volunteer project is so appreciated!

 

Event: Ride to Conquer Cancer

Dates: June 14th & 15th, 2014
Cities: Surrey, BC to Redmond, WA

 

If you are interested in further information about volunteering with the Ride, please contact me at (1-888-771-2453) or email me at jlowe@conquercancer.ca I would really appreciate if you could forward this information along to your fellow co-workers!
