There are a variety of volunteering options for the Paceline ride, including bike management, food and beverage tent operations, photography, rider check-in and more.

For the second year in a row, the Paceline team is reaching out to people across the state of Georgia and asking them to raise money for the Georgia Cancer Center to help advance cancer research projects.

The local grassroots movement will host its second annual bike ride during the weekend of May 29-30. This year’s ride will start at 7 a.m. on Augusta University’s Summerville Campus. There are 25-, 45- and 100-mile routes taking riders through some of the most beautiful parts of Augusta, Harlem and Thomson.

While the team would love so see all Augusta University and AU Health employees register to ride and raise money for the cancer center, they are also looking for volunteers to help during the Opening Ceremony on May 29 and Ride Day on May 30.

A variety of volunteer options include bike management, food and beverage tent operations, photography, rider check-in and more. Those interested in volunteering can help ensure the success of the event.

Volunteer shifts range from three hours to eight hours, but the longer shifts can be divided amongst volunteers. In exchange for their time, volunteers will also receive swag from the event.

Those interested in helping can register to volunteer for the Paceline bike ride online.

For more information on volunteer opportunities, email Cayla Long or call 706-364-4797.
