Why Become a Volunteer?
Each year volunteers offer their time or resources to Tour de OC giving a slice of hope to abused and neglected children. Tour de OC is fortunate to have a planning committee that is dedicated to providing our volunteers with a positive experience.
How many of us have said, “There never seems to be enough hours in the day.” Volunteering is the gift of time. May the gift of your time to Tour de OC bring you fulfillment and joy. We appreciate all of you that adjust your busy schedules to make a difference in the life of children facing insurmountable odds. Our volunteer effort is designed to accomplish our mission and ensure that we serve to the best of our ability with the resources we have available.
