ADA Tour de Cure: Volunteer Opportunity

The American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure cycling event is returning to the Marymoor Park area on May 4th, and is looking for volunteer amateur radio operators to provide communications support as part of the Support and Gear (SAG) team.

This is a great event that Lake Washington Ham Club has supported for many years.  No HF experience is necessary, and anyone with a valid amateur radio license has the potential to help.

Volunteer opportunities are available for amateur radio operators to join the SAG team, providing crucial communications support as mobile SAGs (both vehicle and bike), Rest Stop Communicators, and Net Control Operators. Additionally, two or three volunteers are needed to form a SAG Coordination Group, acting as the Comm Lead and Net Control Setup Lead, to help manage and organize the event day. Due to increased participant numbers, more bike SAGs are required.

To register, please sign up on the SignUp Volunteer Event site at under the SAG Team/Ham section.

Registration and participation are required as soon as possible for planning purposes. The ADA Tour de Cure event details can be found on the 2024 Seattle Tour de Cure Event Page at
