How Can You Help?

Two ways: donate or help raise funds; and volunteer at our quality of life events! Adaptive athletes participate for FREE. So we count on each and every volunteer to help make the magic happen! 

Event Volunteering

Online registration opens approximately 45 days prior to each event.  Sign up to volunteer by clicking on one of the events on the Calendar of Events page. Here's an overview of who volunteers, and what they do:


Volunteering with Life Rolls On is a great way to give back and make new friends. If you don't know anyone in Life Rolls On, or don't know quite what to do ... don't worry! This is the warmest, most welcoming group in the world. Come on out! We'll make it the best day ever!


We have more and more families volunteering ... it's a beautiful way to spend the day together. (Pictured: The Leum Family at La Jolla Shores CA)

corporate teams

Want to build trust, productivity and long-lasting connections in your workplace? Have your company sponsor one or all of the Life Rolls On events, and bring a team of up to 40 volunteers to each event. We promise you will be blown away by the changes in your corporate culture.

Athletic Coaches

on the skate ramp

You don't need to know how to skate to be an amazing volunteer. You'll be pushing athletes up the sides of the skate park, and spotting the little shredders. We promise it will be one of the most joy-filled days of your life.

in the water

You don't need to be a pro surfer to volunteer! However, you do need to be in good shape, as you'll be lifting and helping adaptive athletes throughout the day. And you should be very comfortable in the water. Our water volunteers tend to have years of experience in surfing, competitive swimming, water polo or paddle boarding.

Event Coordination

early morning set-up

Don't have time to spend the whole day at an event? No problem! Volunteer for Early Morning Set-up. Set-up volunteers unload tables, flags and tents, and assemble everything according to the event planogram.


We need outgoing, enthusiastic volunteers to welcome everyone to the event. Each athlete and volunteer needs to be checked in; and walk-ups and roll-ups need help registering. Jerseys for water volunteers are also checked out at Registration.

athlete prep

Athlete Prep volunteers locate surfers, help them get into wetsuits and into the Chill Zone before their scheduled surf times. Athlete Prep volunteers are key to making the event run smoothly. Though not essential, experience in Rehabilitation Therapy would be helpful.


Are you a natural host or hostess? This is for you! Volunteer to serve breakfast, snacks, lunch and beverages. Lunch is served in heats to keep surf flow uninterrupted.

afternoon breakdown & clean-up

Are you a can-do take charge person? Please sign up for Afternoon Breakdown! We need an amazing crew to break down tables, tents, flags, etc.; get it all back into the truck, and back to the storage facility.
