Volunteers make WAM possible!


The Wish-A-Mile® Bicycle Tour has a variety of volunteer opportunities throughout the tour and on the different routes that are offered. WAM 300 volunteers must commit for the full tour, which runs Thursday, July 28 – Sunday, July 31, 2022, and be at least 21 years old. WAM 50, WAM Jr. and Heroes Hurrah (finish-line celebration) volunteers must commit to Sunday, July 31 with various times depending on role (WAM 50 volunteers also must be at least 21 years old). WAM 300 and WAM 50 volunteers will work with a partner. You can recruit your partner or you can be paired with someone. You will drive an official WAM vehicle that will be provided. You also must complete a background check and have a valid driver’s license and auto insurance. Personal vehicles are prohibited on the tour.


Volunteers on the WAW 50 route will be driving a support and guide vehicle (SAG), managing a break stop or marking the route as our road crew. If you have questions regarding volunteering on the WAM 50 or would like to participate, please contact Hannah Bentley at hbentley@michigan.wish.org.


If you are interested in volunteering at Heroes Hurrah, our finish-line celebration, it will take place on Sunday, July 31, 2022. We need volunteers to help with kids' games, parking, finish-line festivities and more. Heroes Hurrah is also a wonderful way to get your community groups or co-workers together to have a fun day of volunteering! If you have questions or would like to register yourself or your group, please use the link below or contact Erin Ehlers at eehlers@michigan.wish.org
