Are you looking for something for the next two hours or for the next two years? Use your talents to help us save lives and end breast cancer forever! Our volunteers come in all sizes, shapes, and colors, but their hearts are pink and their caring has no limit. We need you now more than ever.
Volunteers are the heart and soul of our organization, providing countless hours contributing their skills to further the Susan G. Komen® promise. We will work with your availability.

Volunteer for the MORE THAN PINK Walk
Event Leadership Committee (ELC)
The Event Leadership Committee (ELC) exists to produce our fundraising events in particular the MORE THAN PINK Walk but also our new VIRTUAL EVENTS as well. This event is vital to our mission and is not possible without the ELC. Essentially, we want committees to focus on the components that equate to event growth, both in terms of income and participation. Events that put a concentrated focus on these components will see growth. These volunteer roles happen long before anyone gets to the event and they produce great results. These are great volunteer opportunities for people who are goal-driven, action-oriented, and share a passion for the mission of Komen.
The role of the Coaching Committee is to boost participation and fundraising. Without
teams and Top Fundraisers, we do not have an event. With MORE THAN PINK Walk™ the Coaching Committee extends the invitation to participate to the community. Not only are we working to increase the number of people who come to our event, we also want to turn them into fundraisers! While participation in the event helps to raise awareness, the real magic happens when our participants become robust fundraisers.
Corporate Engagement Committee
The Corporate Engagement Chair ensures the MORE THAN PINK Walk™ brings in new sponsors, retains past sponsors, and cultivates corporate partners to maximize participation and fundraising. We want to transition companies from just writing a check – to writing a check, forming a team, engaging employees through team building and fundraising, identifying committee leadership volunteers, and providing volunteers on event day.
The Marketing / Promotion Committee
The Marketing / Promotion Committee ensures the community knows about the MORE THAN PINK Walk™ so they can get involved in the fight against breast cancer. He/she puts together a subcommittee whose work begins long before event day with promotional efforts to recruit teams and sponsors. It continues as the event approaches, promoting stories to the media to put a face on the event. This committee manages publicity on event day and circulates stories and results post-event to help the community understand the event’s impact and what we do with the money we raise.
Event Day Volunteers
There will be many areas to volunteer during event day (Saturday, September 18, 2021). Here are just some that are open, as the event evolves more opportunities may arise!
Key day-of-event volunteer positions include the following:
- T-shirt, Wrap or another Promotional Item Pickup
- Hope Village
- Kids Area
- Food & Beverage
- Route volunteers
- Cheering stations (at the start, along the route, and at the finish)
