There are over 8,000 volunteers and staff involved with Sports Backers. Collectively we encourage an active lifestyle in all corners of our community. It doesn’t matter if you are filling cups at a water stop, leading a fitness class, or advocating for bike infrastructure, we are all part of the same team. Together we each contribute to the magic that makes our nationally recognized programs and events come to life and help our families, friends, and neighbors live actively.
