“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. Every day, they give of themselves with selfless dedication and an unmatched commitment to helping. As our volunteers step forward to make a difference in the lives of others with remarkable energy, they bring us closer to the community we strive to serve. In the process, they make CURE Childhood Cancer stronger as an organization.
We’re looking for volunteers to help in the following areas:
Lauren’s Run and CURE Annual Picnic
5K Run/2K Fun Run/Walk and Tot Trot in memory of our “Lauren’s”; Lauren Zagoria and Lauren Kochman. After the race, everyone is invited to stay for lunch games and an afternoon of fun. Click here for more information.
A Tribute to Our Quiet Heroes
Held every year in September, this event that honors mothers of children with cancer and raises valuable funds for pediatric cancer research. Click here for more information.
In our office, we’re always looking for volunteers to help with everything from Spanish translations to letter mailing.
Volunteers are needed to provide patients and their families with food, fun, fellowship, and information about CURE Childhood Cancer at our Open Arms meals: dinner on Thursdays and lunch on the 2nd Tuesday of every month – at Scottish Rite and Egleston hospitals.
Our Brown Bag Lunch Program is another way to help provide a little comfort through a good meal. On the first and fourth Tuesday of every month, we deliver CURE lunch bags to parents of kids with cancer – you can help by volunteering to sponsor a month of lunches, and then holding a food drive at your company, school service club, or group to collect the food items needed for the brown bag lunches.
CURE Projects and Playtime in the Zone
CURE Projects and Playtime in The Zone happens on the 1st Tuesday of each month at Scottish Rite. This 3,500-square-foot retreat for patients at the Scottish Rite campus was sponsored by an all-star cast including the Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Foundation, Troy Aikman Foundation, National Hockey League (NHL) and National Hockey League Player’s Association (NHLPA).
We need groups of 4-5 volunteers who will commit to planning activities and volunteering at the Zone on a quarterly basis. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old. Set up is from 6-6:30pm and the program will run from 6:30pm to 8:00pm with minimal cleanup afterwards.
Contact Lisa Branch at email@example.com if you have any questions or would like more information about volunteering at the Zone.
