Volunteer Opportunities

Whether it's the Walk to Cure Diabetes, the Revolution Ride to Defeat Diabetes, or any other JDRF event, they all require a considerable amount of volunteer help.

This help can be pre-event, like working on a committee and helping with participant recruitment, sponsorship solicitation, etc, as well as day-of-event duties, including registration, route supervision, kids activities, refreshment area, etc.

For information on the many volunteer opportunities available, please contact Amanda at (709) 987-0238 or email

Volunteers are the backbone of JDRF and their support is truly appreciated!
