Race volunteers

Why volunteer?

It’s fun. It’s rewarding. And you’ll meet some truly incredible people when you volunteer for the Komen Central Virginia Race for the Cure. The success of the Race depends heavily on the support we receive from more than three hundred volunteers in the months leading up to the Race and on Race Day.

Who can volunteer?

Fun-loving, enthusiastic, hard-working, and reliable individuals who are willing to contribute to the success of the Komen Central Virginia Race.

When can you volunteer?

There are two ways you can volunteer for the Race:

  1. We are always looking for volunteers to help with pre-Race planning, organization and marketing. If you are interested in helping us pre-Race, please fill out this volunteer application.
  2. It takes hundreds on Race day to provide the best experience to our participants. If you are interested in volunteering on Race day, please review the Race day volunteer opportunities listed below and sign up for something that interestes you.
