Volunteer registration is now open for the Fifth Annual 24 Foundation Atlanta. This year’s charity cycling event is scheduled to roll through Sandy Springs’ Mount Vernon Woods neighborhood from 2 p.m., Saturday, October 4 to 2 p.m., Sunday, October 5 when participants will be riding and raising funds for the Aflac Cancer Center of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
Approximately 150 volunteers are needed to support this year’s Atlanta ride in areas, such as packet pick-up, pre-event course preparation and maintenance, food and beverage, campground management and parking and traffic control. Volunteer shifts are assigned in three and four-hour increments and opportunities are available for individuals and groups.

“Our organization and events thrive off our amazing volunteer base which is instrumental in providing support year round and in all aspects of our rides,” said Basil Lyberg, executive director of 24 Foundation. “There are volunteer opportunities for everyone. We encourage people to grab their friends and family and join our volunteer community to help put cancer in its place.”
