Event Support


RATPOD would not be possible without the hundreds of volunteers that join us each year.  From HAM radio operators, to motorcycle support, SAG vehicle drivers, mechanics and food stop volunteers, there are many volunteer opportunities. In exchange for your time, we are happy to provide you with meals both Friday and Saturday evenings (as well as access to food stops along the route), lodging accommodations in UM-Western dorms, and an official RATPOD t-shirt.

Seeing the kids enjoy a week away from the chaos that cancer often brings within the home was moving in so many ways. Just being a part of that was one of the best experiences of my life.

From the outside looking in summer may seem like our busy season, but Camp Māk-A-Dream works its magic year-round. From special projects in preparation for our major fundraising events to hosting educational workshops at our Gold Creek campus, we stay busy regardless of the temperature outside. It just happens to be summertime that we especially look forward to.
