Duties: Take the challenge: Volunteers are the community drivers in every Run location in Canada. Together with a committee of like-minded individuals, you will raise funds for breast cancer research and support programs through the Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure. Planning and organizing the Run takes time, passion and creative thinking. In partnership with volunteers and staff, you will be part of something truly extraordinary in your community.

On Run Day, you oversee volunteer schedules through volunteer sign-in, the distribution of t-shirts, redirecting volunteers as needed, verifying of hours, and thanking volunteers for their time and energy. Support and training on our online volunteer management software will be provided. Time Commitment: ? Monthly committee meetings from May to July and biweekly in August and September ?
