“The support from the volunteer staff is second to none and we riders feel very pampered.” –longtime Habitat 500 Rider

The 2020 Habitat 500 has gone virtual! No in-person volunteering is planned for 2020.

About Volunteering

Volunteers play an integral role in making the Habitat 500 a successful event. Riders raise funds for the construction of Habitat for Humanity homes as well as build awareness and support for the mission of Habitat for Humanity. Through your contribution of volunteer support for the ride, you’re helping to build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter for Habitat homeowners across Minnesota, the United States, and around the world.

Each year, volunteers join riders for the week, sleeping in overnight hosts’ gyms or outside in tents and eating breakfast and dinner with them each day. The Habitat 500 counts on volunteers to help the Ride go smoothly each year!

Join us for the Habitat 500! We need volunteers for the following roles:

Route Marker: in teams of two, drive the route for the next day’s ride and put down spray paint arrows and signs to direct riders [1 needed]

Rest Stop Volunteers: in a team of 2-3, prepare and refill food and beverage for riders at a church or park location, setting up tables and tents when needed [2-3 needed]

You can also sign up as a general volunteer and have us put you where we most need!

All volunteers should be available for orientation on July 11th, then for the week to volunteer (July 12-18).

Please email habitat500@hfhmn.org for more information about volunteer opportunities!
