CureFest17: Potential Volunteers

2017 CureFest Event Volunteers

CureFest is an event in which the childhood cancer community and the general public can come together to stand as One Voice against childhood cancer. This year's event is scheduled for Saturday-Sunday, September 15-16, 2018. There will be many activities throughout the weekend including a Rally to the Capitol, a Meet and Greet at Freedom Plaza, and a Candlelight Vigil at the White House on Saturday. On Sunday there will be a Bereavement Breakfast, a Walk around the National Mall, entertainment and speakers, games and activities for children, many childhood cancer foundations sharing information, and much more.

Please look over the many volunteer opportunities and select the time slot(s) that work(s) best for you. More information will be provided to you as it gets closer to the event (i.e., when and where to check in). Thank you for volunteering your time to help make CureFest a successful event!

Please review the CureFest Volunteer FAQ for more information.
