How do I prepare?
“Raising money is all about sales. Whether you want to go into business or nonprofit, the experience of raising money is invaluable. An interviewer is much more interested in talking about Journey of Hope than an internship. Everyone has internships but very few people have an experience like Journey of Hope. It will make you stand out amidst all the resumes.”

Here you’ll find a few resources that may answer questions like: “How do I get a bike?”, “How can I plan out my fundraising”, or “Is it possible to study, work, and train at once?”
Doing a summer event is no small feat, so it may seem like a daunting task. Fear not, most Pi Alphas that have completed these events came in with little to no past fundraising or cycling experience, and 90% end up surpassing their goals! Everyone should have their own Ability Experience, and we give you all of the tools and support to make it possible.
For all of our team members, you’ll receive access to a library of resources that will tell you everything you’ll need to know about fundraising, preparation, training, and safety on the road. You’ll also have monthly coaching calls to walk you through whatever you need. Cyclists have professional cycling coaches hand-tailoring them just the right workouts they need to get in shape, and crew members receive position-specific training from our staff to set them up for success.
