TDV Team prepares for Volunteer Rally
The Ryder Hesjedal’s Tour de Victoria (TDV) is looking for enthusiastic people to join the Island Savings Volunteer Crew on June 24, 2012 for Canada’s premiere cycling event.
Get in on the action and join hundreds of other volunteers for a full day of excitement and fun in the community. The TDV team has a number of volunteering opportunities that are available for all ages. Volunteer positions include: road marshall, course marking, swag bag crew, registration team, feed zone team, and many others. Cycling experience is not required.
"We have had incredible volunteers working with us up until this point, but we still have some critical spots to fill," said Trish Duncan, Volunteer Chair for the TDV Organizing Committee. "The volunteers act as the fuel to run this amazing event and with under two months to go, we’re really hoping to fill all of the remaining positions in the upcoming weeks."
