Join our team

Cancer is one of the great equalizers. The promise of a child, the aspirations of a teenager, the love of a mom or dad, the ambitions of a farmer, or CEO, or politician, or professional athlete mean nothing to cancer cells. It touches people from all walks of life and, for many of us, it's touched someone we care about.

Join us as we fight back. Let's embrace the cancer community to create an event that will give back long after we climb off our bikes. Committees are being formed and we need more caring people to join us as we truly make a difference in this world. The best part? We will do this in the spirit of camaraderie with others who care. Considering helping out? Volunteer help is always appreciated and positions are open for the annual August Courage Ride. Please do not hesitate to e-mail us at and see how you can help.
