Ride for Cancer powered by BMO Bank of Montreal is more than a cycling event – it’s a community of champions who are facing the fight to end cancer in our lifetime.

Ride for Cancer powered by BMO Bank of Montreal is looking for an all-star addition to our team for our 2020 event. The role of Volunteer Lead is a volunteer position that will support with the management and coordination of 200+ volunteers leading up to event day and on event day (October 3, 2020).

As part of our incredible Volunteer Crew, the Volunteer Lead will join us for an epic experience and be a part of the behind the scenes action of Atlantic Canada’s largest cycling fundraising event.

As the current COVID-19 environment continues to evolve, the Ride for Cancer powered by BMO Bank of Montreal team and the QEII Foundation are closely monitoring the situation and planning for many different scenarios. While it may end up looking different, this event will happen on October 3, 2020 — one way or another. The health and safety of our Ride community continues to be our top priority.
