2015 Race volunteers - small

The Komen Central Virginia MORE THAN PINK Walk is made possible by our incredible volunteers. These passionate individuals go beyond simply supporting our cause; they get out there and make this important fundraising event a success. Our volunteers truly are MORE THAN PINK.

Join us as a volunteer for our signature event! Show your passion for the breast cancer cause and take action. Prove that you too are MORE THAN PINK. We welcome any and all fun-loving, enthusiastic, hard-working, and reliable individuals who are willing to contribute to the success of this important event.

By volunteering, you’ll help make your local event a success, which in turn will help Komen fund breast cancer research, education, screening, and treatment. Not only will you make an impact in the fight against breast cancer, you will also have fun, feel rewarded, and meet some truly incredible people—survivors, family members, allies, and more, all of whom have been impacted by this devastating disease.

Why We Fundraise

The statistics are staggering...

2018 bc stats

But we can fight these statistics together by fundraising for the MORE THAN PINK Walk. We need your help to make the biggest impact possible against breast cancer by raising funds for breast cancer screenings, treatment, and education programs that save lives in our community and also fuel national research programs.

Fundraising is easy with online fundraising tools and social media. When you register for the Walk, you automatically receive your own fundraising website, which can be personalized. Your personal Fundraising Center is your starting point for spreading the word and maximizing your fundraising impact. And our Facebook app is a quick and easy way to ask your family and friends to support your efforts.
