The committee will help to recruit teams, obtain corporate sponsorships, fundraise, help with event day logistics, and help spread the CF story to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.

Time Commitment: April to September/October

  • Approximately 4-6 hours per month
  • 1 hour meeting 1 time per month
  • Individual work via phone & e-mail

Sub-Committees of 3+ volunteers will focus on specific needs of the cycle event which include:

  • Sponsorship: Be willing to share personal contacts to local companies and help CF staff obtain event sponsorships.
  • Logistics: Set-up rest stops along, event day activities, food/beverages, entertainment, etc.
  • Recruitment / Fundraising: Recruit teams and individuals and help with fundraising.
  • Marketing: Promotion of the Cycle event through print, TV, radio, billboard, local bike shops/clubs, and other creative media outlets; this would include helping to secure in-kind media sponsors; event promotional items such as brochures, day-of signage, etc.
