GranFondo needs volunteers

GranFondo Canada, producers of epic participation cycling events, needs your volunteering spirit.

GranFondo Canada, producers of epic participation cycling events, has announced the launch of their volunteer program for the second annual RBC GranFondo Kelowna.

Starting and finishing in downtown Kelowna, the 122 km mass participation cycling event follows a spectacular scenic course along Okanagan Lake to Vernon, returning through Lake Country to the finish at Waterfront Park.

The organizers are looking to build a dedicated and inspirational team of over 300 volunteers to help stage the event’s various activities, which takes place from July 12 to 14.

GranFondo Canada is committed to creating sensational experiences for participants, volunteers and the surrounding communities that their events are hosted in.

Volunteers seek to inspire action, learn new skills and support the positive message of a stronger more resilient community through an increase in sports participation.
