Note: Families who volunteer will have their $75 Rental Fee refunded after completing of an ~ 4-hour shift. You can have someone volunteer on your behalf! When you sign in, indicate which child you are volunteering on behalf of. Masks are required for all adults during the early shift. Masking is optional in the late shift. We will supply hand sanitizer. Please contact info@youcanride2.ca if you have any symptoms. There are additional shifts available on Sunday April 16, if you are available.
