As a community service and fund raiser, Evergreen Audubon will be providing marshals for this year's July Triple Bypass bicycle event on Saturday July 8th and Sunday July 9th. The group is looking for volunteers who can help on either or both days.
"The more volunteers we get, the less time each volunteer needs to donate," says President Kathy Madison. "We have been assigned to Georgetown again this year, a great location. If you've never help with the event, please consider it. Not only is it fun to see the thousands of riders, the marshalling is easy, you wait for riders to come by and then point them in the correct direction or make announcements about the road conditions. It's that simple. Bring camp-chairs and a picnic to make it even more enjoyable!"
Team Evergreen, the sponsor of the ride, splits some of the ride entry fees with the nonprofits who provide assistance. In the past, Evergreen Audubon has typically earned about $3,000 for supplying a number of volunteers who each donate a few hours. Team Evergreen will also treat the volunteers to a Rockies Game in late July, including a pre-game appreciation party near the ballpark.
