About Volunteering

Ready to change a child’s life? Register to become an AngelRide volunteer.

Volunteers are what make AngelRide possible and, in turn, bring 20,000 smiles to hospitalized children in the Northeast. Thank you!

There are many ways that you can help – check out our list of open volunteer positions, and register today. When you register, you can choose your “team,” which will be the name of your department (motorcrew, SAG, rest stops, etc.).

Due to popular demand, volunteers are now also able to contribute to AngelRide as fundraisers. Just like the riders, when you register to volunteer, you create your own fundraising web page and help AngelRide meets its financial goals for the Hole in the Wall Gang’s Hospital Outreach Program. If you do not wish to fundraise, there is no obligation for volunteers to do so. (However, please do not change the $100 selection during the registration process.)
