We could not #TackleCancer without the help of our dedicated, enthusiastic volunteers!
The DCC relies heavily on the involvement of thousands of committed volunteers. Volunteers are encouraged to join in at one of the DCC Start or Finish locations in Miami-Dade, Broward and West Palm Beach or at our many water stops along the routes.
Last year, DCC VI recruited and assisted 954 volunteers! We cannot thank you enough for all the time you put in to making DCC VI a record-breaking year!
Throughout DCC, we rely on our volunteers for:
Food Preparation / Food & Beverage: Nutrition plays a key role in providing riders with the energy level they need for ultimate stamina during long rides. Food prep volunteers will help prepare food and make sure it is ready to eat for our cancer tackling riders!
Set up / Breakdown: Are you handy? Do you know how to set up a table, tent or bike rack? Help the team set up the water stop so it is ready to go in time for riders to arrive.
Hydration Station/Water Stops: Hydration is key! Drinking water and Gatorade is vital to a successful ride to prevent cramping and dehydration. We need your help to keep all of our #CancerFighters hydrated!
Bike Parking / Loading: After our riders tackle the long journey, they need to get some nutrition and fluids back in their system. During this time, we need some helpful individuals to watch over the riders precious bicycles!
Luggage: In order to keep the party going post ride, some of our participants bring extra clothes to change in to. Help organize our luggage so our riders’ bags get to the correct final destination.
Massage Therapy: After the treacherous journey through the DCC, rider’s muscles get tired and sore. Nothing seems better than a deep massage by a certified massage therapist! Help loosen up our riders.
Cheering/ Medal Givers: What is a better way to thank our riders for completing the DCC then by cheering for them as they cross the finish line?! If you are a loud and enthusiastic individual, we would love to have you cheer and distribute metals to all our participants!
Information: Come help give all our riders information once they have arrived at the start or finish of the ride.
Kid Zone: Even though you are most likely too old to use bounce houses, you can still relive the memories by supervising the kid zone! Help use keep the kid zone safe and enjoyable for all our future DCC riders!
Goody Bag Stuffing: For signing up for the DCC, our riders get goody bags consisting of a water bottle, little trinkets and additional information pertaining to the DCC. And unfortunately, those items do not just appear in a bag. Help us stuff these bags to the brim for our riders!
