FAQs: Volunteering

Volunteers are an essential part of the Tour des Trees, and we are grateful for all of the people who so willingly dedicate their time and effort to make this event a success.

The volunteer support crew works with Tour Director Paul Wood to provide roadside support for riders. Event volunteers work with Karen Lindell (TREE Fund) to assist with outreach events. 

As a volunteer, registration is free, you receive tee shirts to wear while on duty, and you’re eligible for reimbursement from TREE Fund for up to $350 in travel expenses. Reimbursement requests for the 2018 Tour des Trees must be submitted to TREE Fund by August 31, 2018. Unreimbursed expenses are often tax deductible, so volunteers are encouraged to save travel receipts and check with their tax experts.

Volunteers are not required to fundraise, but many wish to share their enthusiasm for the Tour with family and friends. When you register as a volunteer, you will automatically get a fundraising page, and it’s easy to put it to use.

If you’re interested in volunteering for this year’s Tour, contact Karen Lindell.
