Join us in 2024 as a California Coast Classic Mission Ambassador!

As a Mission Ambassador you are an arthritis warrior who is willing to share your journey with the CCC Bike Tour and Arthritis Foundation community. Whether you plan on joining the tour in-person in 2024 or simply have a passion for conquering arthritis, mission ambassadors help raise awareness in a variety of ways throughout the year.

With in-person and virtual opportunities, submissions could be used by the California Coast Classic Bike Tour and or the Arthritis Foundation through social posts, newsletters, emails, and other digital channels throughout the year.

What’s involved with volunteering as a mission ambassador?
For both in-person and virtual ambassador opportunities, we would ask you to complete the 2024 Mission Ambassador questionnaire and share 2-3 photos. 

If selected for an in-person mission ambassador opportunity, riders would be riding in your honor for that day, and you will:

  • Join us at base camp from 4-8pm (approx.) to enjoy camaraderie, social hour, and dinner.
  • Share your journey with us during the evening program (approx. 2-3 minutes).
  • Be featured in social posts, newsletter, and other digital channels on a TBD day during the 8 day tour.

If selected for a virtual/remote mission ambassador opportunity, you will:

  • Be featured in social posts, newsletter, and other digital channels throughout the year.
