Our volunteers are an integral part of the success of our event. A team of over 200 volunteers are needed to produce the GranFondo. We could not have this event without you and we are grateful for your time and energy.
The Giro di San Diego GranFondo will benefit Rivers of Hope Foundation, USO San Diego and the San Diego County Law Enforcement Foundation. The Rivers of Hope Foundations mission is to help children in need of a forever family find permanent loving homes and their own sense of self-worth by developing and coordinating resources and programs to create community awareness, recruit adoptive families, provide financial aid for adoption and assistance for foster children and orphans.
For 71 years, the USO has supported U.S. troops and their families wherever they serve. Across the United States and around the world, the American military knows that the USO is there for them. By supporting the USO San Diego, Americans show their appreciation and express their gratitude to the men and women who serve us.
