The Only Two Reasons You’ll Need to Volunteer at This Year’s Benchmark Twilight Cycling Classic

A group of volunteers from last year’s Benchmark Twilight Cycling Classic, sponsored by Benchmark Federal Credit Union.

There are plenty of reasons to volunteer — here’s the two you’ll love.

We’re just a few short weeks away from this year’s Benchmark Twilight Cycling Classic! This event, sponsored by Benchmark Federal Credit Union, is expected to be the biggest (and best) in all its 15 historical years. You might wonder how we are able to pull off such a huge task, from the West Chester Dental Arts Kid’s Race to the Wilmington University Pro Women’s Criterium and Iron Hill Pro Men’s Criterium. Well, we get by with a little help from our friends – volunteers!!

While there’s always a long list of reasons for why you should volunteer for anything – and our bike race is no different – we’re going to give you the only two reason’s you’ll want to volunteer at this year’s race:

The Perks!

As a volunteer you are front and center to all the race-day action! Help pedestrians cross the street as cyclists whizz around the course, keep teams honest during the Tolsdorf Trike Race, get to know business members in your community by helping them set up and tear down the Chester County Hospital Community Festival, and much more when you volunteer at this year’s race.

Other exclusive volunteer perks include:

  • Free lunch at the Saloon 151 food truck
  • Free commemorative volunteer t-shirt
  • Volunteer hours
  • The gratitude of the Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce, Benchmark Federal Credit Union, and all other sponsors of the Benchmark Twilight Cycling Classic
  • A good night’s sleep after all the hard work is done!

Supporting Your Community!

There’s a reason that the Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce has an initiative called Think Shop Buy Local; shopping at small businesses in your community helps put the money you spend right back into your local economy. Which means we can throw more events like the Benchmark Twilight Cycling Classic or the QVC Christmas Parade!

When you volunteer, you’re helping us keep these events alive while taking the responsibilities from a few and shouldering them for the thousands of spectators to enjoy for years to come. By volunteering, you are sharing a sense of pride for your community, and you can brag that you had a hand in this year’s success! We can’t do these events without you – our volunteers.
