Cure Childhood Cancer

Volunteer

I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.” -Author unknown

Our volunteers are the heart and soul of CURE. They give themselves with selfless dedication and an unmatched commitment to helping. As our volunteers step forward to make a difference in the lives of families who have a child diagnosed with cancer, they bring us closer to the community we serve. Volunteers make CURE Childhood Cancer stronger as an organization.

The annual 10k/5k/2/ Fun Run/Walk and Tot Trot in memory of Lauren Zagoria and Lauren Kochman is the perfect opportunity for volunteers who love the outdoors and large crowds. Many volunteers are needed to make this event successful. Click here for more information.

CURE Picnic

Following Lauren’s Run, race participants and families who have a child diagnosed with cancer are invited to join us for the CURE Picnic. This fun filled event includes a picnic lunch, large inflatables, arts and crafts, carnival style games, a cake walk and SO much more. Dedicated volunteers are critical to the success of this day!

CURE Office Volunteers

Work with CURE staff to prepare large mailings, sort donated items, prepare items for delivery to the hospital and other office tasks.

Open Arm’s Dinner and Lunch

This meal program provides families whose child is inpatient at the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Centers of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta lunch on Tuesdays and dinner on Thursdays. For more information on this program, click here.

Brown Bag Lunch

On the first and fourth Tuesday of each month, CURE volunteers deliver lunch bags to the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorder’s inpatient units at Scottish Rite and Egleston. These lunches are given to the patient’s caregiver who may not have the opportunity to leave their child’s bedside or the money to eat yet another meal in the hospital cafeteria. For more information, click here.

CURE Projects and Playtime in the Zone

On the 2nd Wednesday of each month, CURE staff and volunteers visit the Zone, a 3,500-square-foot retreat for patients at the Scottish Rite campus of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. We need groups of 5-6 people to plan activities and volunteer. Set up begins at 5:00 PM and patient and siblings visit the area from 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM. There is minimal clean up afterwards. All volunteers must be 18 years of age or older.

Contact Lisa Branch at lisa@curechildhoodcancer.org if you have any questions or would like more information about volunteering at the Zone.
