What is Crew?
Crew is a family taking part together in a remarkable, meaningful, challenging, and life changing experience. Crew Members commit to an entire event of service and assistance to others in an effort to help in the battle against cancer. Crew begin their journey together on Friday evening, arrive early on Saturday morning for a great day ahead, stay at Camp overnight together, and conclude their experience seeing all of their hard work pay off with a successful, fun, and meaningful weekend. Crew Members form a lifelong bond that is initially brought together by a common interest and grows because of amazing experiences they have in their journey throughout the event and beyond!
Crew are asked to be and do a lot. In return, please be prepared to receive high-fives, smiles, tears, and sincere thanks from the Participants and Staff. You are truly astonishing!
Crew strives for EXCELLENCE. Our goal is to exceed the expectations of others whether it is a fellow Crew Member or Participant. We want everything to look fabulous, work efficiently and be top notch. This Crew strives towards perfection.
Crew displays excellent TEAMWORK! This event would not happen without many people working together towards a common set of goals. By working together with set plans or any unique situations that arise, the Crew shows their commitment to each other, the Participants and the cause over and over during the event.
Crew is all about is SERVICE. When you serve as a Crew Member on The Ride, you will put yourself through an endurance test, but you will be rewarded in ways that you’ve never imagined.
Crew exhibit amazing FLEXIBILITY throughout this event. By keeping a smile on your face and being willing to help where there is a need, the Crew often have an even more diverse set of experiences while on the event than they anticipated when they began their journey.
THANK YOU for making this amazing commitment. You work to help create a wonderful experience for the Riders and show the world that heroes really do exist. You are the backbone of the event.
EXCELLENCE, TEAMWORK, SERVICE, FLEXIBILITY = CREW
