Brainerd Lakes- Volunteer
Volunteers make it possible to spread the word about breast cancer awareness and to raise funds toward the Komen vision: a world without breast cancer. Without their support, our life-saving events just could not happen. Susan G. Komen® volunteers number over 75,000. At our Brainerd Lakes Race, over 100 volunteers help at educational, screening, and fund raising events. There are several ways to become help in this very worthwhile endeavor.
Become active on a Committee such as Education or Race for the Cure®. You do not have to be a breast cancer survivor or know someone who is to feel a passion for the cause. If you would like to be more active in the organization, join a committee to share your talents and maximize your efforts.
Be a worker bee. Help is needed at many events, whether it be staffing a booth at a health fair or working at some aspect of the annual Race for the Cure®. Many hands make light work and we always need more. This could be only a couple of hours or a half a day, but all are vital to the success of an event. It’s simple to get involved. We need you!
We encourage volunteers to also Register to participate in the Race. There are several volunteer opportunities Race weekend that will allow you to volunteer AND walk/run with your friends and family.
THANK YOU for making a difference in the fight against breast cancer!
