Volunteers

OVERview

Farm to Fork Fondo Volunteer Competition

In 2018, Wrenegade Foundation donated more than $50,000 to local organizations in our host communities via our Farm to Fork Fondo Volunteer Competitions. This year we'll be giving away even more, and your votes help decide which groups get the biggest donations.

At each Farm to Fork Fondo event, all the volunteers will be assigned to teams that each represent a different area farm or charitable organization. From the registration tent to the last aid station, you will be greeted and cheered on by volunteers who are competing to bring the most spirit to the day. Ask questions of the volunteer teams to get to know them, their missions, and what makes the event host community unique. At the end of your ride, you will vote for your favorite team and help determine the size of the cash donations we give.

The Volunteer Competition is supported by tax-deductible participant donations to Wrenegade Foundation, sponsors, and 100% of all raffle ticket sales.

Note: New volunteer groups will be announced Summer 2019
