Big Bike Event Day Volunteer-Toronto & York South Areas


  • WHERE
    GTA, ON

DESCRIPTION

Program Overview:

The Heart and Stroke Foundation, a volunteer-based health charity, leads in eliminating heart disease and stroke and reducing their impact through the advancement of research and its application, the promotion of healthy living, and advocacy.

As one of the Heart and Stroke?s largest fundraisers, Big Bike is an incredibly fun team building opportunity for all employees and a great way to engage and build synergy. The event is run from May until September 2019, with the aim of recruiting 200 corporate teams (each team consisting of 29 riders) to participate.

This volunteer position is a very dynamic position as it will give you the opportunity to foster and build relationships with other volunteers, maintain a positive relationship with our participants and complete event setup, execution, and tear down tasks.
