Get Involved!

Trail to a Cure, Inc. is a 100% volunteer organization – we have no paid staff.

Contact us with your thoughts on volunteering (be as specific as possible)!

100% of funds raised at the annual TTAC Ride/Walk/Run event are used to fight HIV/AIDS in accordance with TTAC’s mission statement. Thanks to our sponsors, and also thanks to our event volunteers, this has included participant registration fees every year so far!

Your donation of time, talent, or resources help to make this work possible.

Try participating!

The top online fundraiser and top offline fundraiser had never participated in an event like this before–but have been involved every year–you should, too!

  1. Hi,

    I’m more than happy to help at one of the rest stops on May 7! I’m available pretty much all day… Liz Rettke told me to send this message, so I’m not sure if I need to put any additional info here. E-mail me for questions!

    I would be happy to help out with recycling and site maintenance on Saturday. Please email me with details and contact information.
