Crew & Volunteer

Registering as a Crew Member is a great way to make a difference and use your expertise to help others. When you serve as a Crew Member on The Ride, you will be executing Quebec’s largest cycling fundraiser event and will be rewarded in ways that you’ve never imagined.

Before registering as a Crew Member, it is important to know that the hours can be long, things can change at the last minute and some teams are physically demanding. As a Crew Member, you’ll attend the entire event in a service capacity, but you will not participate in The Ride itself.

OUR SUPPORT

Crew Members receive the same support and fundraising advice as Riders. Crew Members should always feel free to call our Ride Guides at  1-866-966-8356 for fundraising support. As a Crew Member, you are not required to fundraise, but you are strongly encouraged to reach a $500 goal so that more funds can be invested into cancer research.

Crew Members are the foundation of The Ride, and we work hard to make sure you have all the support you need.

You must be at least 16 years old to be a Crew Member.

VOLUNTEER TEAMS

Volunteers contribute their time, skills and creativity to bring The Enbridge® Ride to Conquer Cancer® to life. Volunteers help us to produce the powerful Opening Ceremonies, build our Main Campsite and manage the busy Finish Line. Volunteering is a great way to make a difference, whether you are a registered participant or not.

There are many different opportunities on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday to volunteer as an individual or as a group and we look forward to working with you to find a good fit.
