We Need You!
I’d like to introduce myself, I’m Christopher Henry, and along with one of my best friend, Robert Hauser, we’re the Crew Managers for Act 11. Robert and I started our adventure with The Wisconsin Aids Ride on Act 7 on the Sweep Crew. We were responsible for supporting the riders by making sure they were safe, hydrated & healthy and that the road was free of debris – and the occasional road kill. For Act 8 & 9 we moved up as the Captains of the Sweep Crew. Then for Act 10 we joined the Steering Committee and replaced the outgoing Superhero Crew Manager, Bradley Tabor.
As Crew Mangers one of our jobs is to fill the different crews to ensure that by Day Zero we have a strong and energized crew to watch after our Riders and each other. These crews are made up of awesome volunteers who for four days set their lives aside to serve the Riders and other Crew members on The Wisconsin Aids Ride. We need YOU to help us recruit volunteers for Act 11. So if you have a friend, neighbor or loved one who you think would enjoy donating their time to Act 11 please send them our way.
Volunteers can register by going to www.actride.org and clicking “register” on the upper right part of the home page. If you have a question about a specific crew you can get more information at Act Ride Crew Info. Or you can contact one of us directly if you have more specific questions, our contact info is below.
We are currently looking for help in the following areas.
- Camp Services / Security
- Food Services
- Sweep (Requires access to a vehicle. This position is most suited for those who have a partner to crew with as you will in a car with this person for four day, but it’s not required.)
- AM Pit
- Lunch Pit
- Ice & Water
- Medical (Requires a minimum First Aid certification with in the past 6 month)
- Route Marking (May require access to a vehicle.)
- Photography (Requires access to a vehicle.)
- Bike Tech
A four day commitment isn’t necessary to crew on the Act Ride, there are many Day Crew opportunities available. For more information on Day Crew opportunities you can contact Steve Beavers or visit The Act Ride Day Crew Page.
Robert and I look forward to seeing you all in just a few short months.
