So you want to be involved in this years Riverwest24 but do not know exactly how?

Never fear we need you! This event can only happen with your help! This event is a true community happening that is way more then just the riders, it is the neighbors, the block parties, the impromptu craziness and the Volunteers who help make it all happen! Check out all the info below.

My name is Wendy Mesich and I am coordinating the volunteers this year. There are a five main volunteer opportunities that could use hundreds of volunteers. Other opportunities and needs will also come up over the next 2 months.

Please let me know what you are interested in and your time commitment and we will get you on the schedule(s).
If you have some other great idea for the event, or a specific skill you want to utilize let me know that too and I will get you in contact with the organizer who can work with you.

We will have a general volunteer meeting closer to the race date and until then keep your questions and energy coming!
