You Can Ride 2 Bike Fitting Days are our most important events as it is here that children get fit with bikes and take them home for the season! Children with mobility challenges and more complex seating needs are invited to attend these fitting events (March). Location: The Goodwill Impact Center, 11415-168 St NW Edmonton. Afternoon shifts will run from 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM. Orientation for all positions will be provided. Note: Families who volunteer will have their $75 Rental Fee refunded after completing of a 4-hour shift. You can have someone volunteer on your behalf! Please contact josh@youcanride2.ca ahead of time to let us know if you would like to choose this option. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we will not be able to offer food or snacks. Please bring your own bottle for water. Additionally, masks are required for all adults within the Impact Center and we will supply hand sanitizer. Please complete the Covid-19 Prescreening Questionnaire (link in your volunteer confirmation email) on the same day of your shift to ensure you do not have any symptoms. We really appreciate your help and look forward to seeing you soon! Thanks, The You Can Ride 2 Team
