Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in May
Posted April 14th, 2011 - 7:30 pm by from Boston, United States (Permalink)
Many opportunities to volunteer for this event! Here is a listing, followed by a link for more info :)

We are always looking for Volunteers to come into our office during various weeknights and join us! We have many tasks we work on in preparation for the Event, including local phone support, mailings, data entry, goody bag stuffing and much more. We also need help during the day! If you are available Monday - Friday, between 9 AM - 6 PM, please let us know!
This exciting program was developed to engage our volunteers to help spread the word about the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. We will help you to develop an outreach plan or you can create your own great ways to represent the Avon Walk at events in your community. You can also participate at our own outreach events held at various times throughout the year.
Have you participated in an Avon Walk before? Please share your experience as a walker, crew member or volunteer at one of our Introduction Meetings to help answer questions and motivate interested individuals to register for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Even if you’ve not participated before, we still could use your help with check-in and other meeting activities.
The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer has a variety of smaller pre-events such as our Connection Events, Great Start Party and Expos where you can meet and greet other Walkers, Crew and Volunteers who are participating (or thinking about it!) in this year’s event. These pre-events are held throughout the year and more information can be found in the Volunteer Newsletter. There is a volunteer opportunity for everyone!!
Are you creative, know someone who is, or just like to have some paint or magic markers in your hand! Creating motivational, colorful messages of encouragement for the walkers, for us to hang along the route of the 2010 Avon Walk is something you can do all year long! Get your kids involved - - friends and family too - - and have a “poster-making” party! These words of encouragement are a must-have component to the Walkers, and you’ll feel great creating them.
Do you love the outdoors and leading the way?! Lead regular training walks throughout your local area. We will provide training guidelines, and you should be able to walk long distances. You do NOT need to be a registered Walker or Crew member to lead Training Walks. Training Walks are a great way to build camaraderie and friendships leading up to the event.
During the Event weekend, Volunteers are needed at Event Eve (Friday before the Event), Opening Ceremony (Saturday of the Event), along the route at Cheering Stations (Saturday and Sunday during the Event), at the Wellness Village to help set up tents for Walkers (both Saturday and Sunday), and at Closing Ceremony (on Sunday). Help out for a couple of hours or sign up for the whole weekend. It takes hundreds of Volunteers to make the Avon Walk the amazing experience that it is!
