Volunteers make Mamma Jamma special!
An event the size of Mamma Jamma could not succeed without the dedicated service of hundreds of volunteers. We are enormously grateful for the time, talent and energy that our volunteers bring to the ride every year.
There are volunteer opportunities to fit every schedule, group size and interest, both pre-ride and on ride day. Individuals, families, corporate groups, youth and service clubs are all welcome.
Packet Pick-Up, Rider Check-In & Registration, Rest Stops, Food & Beverage Tent, Gear Check, Photography and Cheer Team are just some of the fun ways individuals and groups can be part of the Mamma Jamma volunteer experience.
Every volunteer gets a custom Texas Mamma Jamma Ride Tee-shirt and are encouraged to enjoy the ride day festivities on Main Street in Martindale, TX after their shift. Depending on the day, time, and location of your shift, you may get a free lunch too!
+ Is there a minimum fundraising requirement for volunteers?
There is no fundraising requirement for volunteers. We encourage and support volunteers who want to fundraising as it helps us return even more funds to the local breast cancer support community, but it is not required. When you register as a volunteer you will have the option to set up a personal fundraising page and have access to the same fundraising tools as registered riders. Check out our Fundraising Tips & Tools for ideas.
+ What is a Lead Volunteer?
A lead volunteer is responsible for all of the activities of their volunteer teams. If you choose to be a lead volunteer, you must be willing to make yourself available the entire time the volunteer activities you are leading occur. The times required will vary by assignments and location.
+ What should I wear?
All Mamma Jamma volunteers will receive a Tee-shirt at start of their shift. Please note that if you sign up to volunteer for more than one shift, you will receive only one Tee-shirt. Comfortable shoes are a must as you will likely be on your feet for most of your shift. Most volunteer shifts are outside and it can be very warm in late September.
+ What should I bring with me?
Bring a water bottle, sun screen, bug spray, and any snacks, especially if you have special dietary requirements.
