New York City-to-Philadelphia Greenway Ride: Volunteer Information
Volunteers are critical to the success of the New York City-to-Philadelphia Greenway Ride. Both the East Coast Greenway Alliance and its production partner, Global Impact Productions, operate with key logistical staff who have planned every detail of the Ride, but we can’t execute that plan without you! That’s where the volunteer Crew comes in.
Crew is a two-day commitment, supporting the riders from the very beginning of the ride to the end. For two days, your job will be to keep the riders safe and happy. You will have a specific role, but at the end of the day we all have one goal: To make sure the riders are safe, and to do what we can to keep them happy.
The volunteer crew will stay at a nearby hotel overnight in Princeton, New Jersey, on Saturday, August 28. Joining the two-day volunteer crew requires a $100 registration fee, which will cover the cost of that hotel as well as several meals provided to you during the event. Volunteers also will receive an event T-shirt.
Once you register to Crew, our Crew Coordinator will reach out to you and ask for your top three choices of assignment. These are described in the “Crew Roles” section linked below. Also, they will ask some specific questions such as whether you have a valid driver’s license, whether you wish to bring your car on the event, and so on. About two months before the Ride, you’ll receive your assignment and be connected with your team captain who will help you get ready.
One-day volunteer opportunities also are available along the route. Registration to volunteer for a single day is free.
