|VOLUNTEERING AT THE TRACK|
|Fond du Lac BMX is an all-volunteer non-profit organization. Fond du Lac BMX relies on volunteers who dedicate their time and help before and during our events. Without our volunteers there would be no Fond du Lac BMX. We are always looking for volunteers to step up and make our races possible. Parents, racers, family members, and spectators can all be involved in a number of ways.
Want to keep busy while your child or family member rides or races? Just see a staff member or stop by registration and ask how you can help. We'd love to get you involved at whatever level you're comfortable with. We won't survive without volunteers.
Volunteering of course is not a requirement but can be a very rewarding experience for you or your child.
Listed below are some volunteer examples of how you can help out at Fond du Lac BMX, your participation will help preserve this fine race facility.
|The beginning of the race season is when we need the most help the track needs to brought up to par; this requires lots of Raking, Stone picking, Patching, Weed whacking, Painting structures and Rolling of the track surface. Workdays are scheduled through out the race season to maintain the Race Track and Facility.|

Volunteering at the track has other incentives too like tax write offs for your expenses to drive to the track; a staff member can tell you all about those.
