In coordination with Pacific Sports LLC, California students and faculty members were the volunteers for the L’Etape du California cycling event in Escondido on May 9-11, 2013. Students and faculty provided volunteer services that included doing race registration, goodie bag stuffing, aid station support, and finish line festivities. We had 160 students/faculty volunteers that participated over the course of the 3 days. We raised $2,000 through our volunteer efforts for the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF), which is an organization that helps people with disabilities still participate in sports-related activities. It was a great event and gave some good community outreach to the University, and the students represented themselves well. We had a lot of positive feedback from the event organizers and are looking forward to participating again next year.
