    **Please only select your top 2 choices.

    Thank you for joining the Breast Cancer Society of Canada's annual Mother's Day Walk volunteer team. Get ready to make a positive and lasting impact in the lives of those affected by breast cancer, even just a few hours of your time will make a difference!

    A high energy event like this requires many volunteers to fill a variety of roles. Our aim is to make participants feel welcome and keep them energized throughout the entire day. Shifts are generally 5 to 6 hours in length and are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Don't miss out, make sure to choose your preferred role today!

    Many of the shifts are completed before the walk begins making it possible to volunteer, raise funds and participate in the walk. Just let us know if you'd like to walk as well so that we can schedule accordingly.

    "Pinking it up" at the walk is HIGHLY encouraged!

    * NOTE: We will do our very best to accommodate your choice of role. Your flexibility is appreciated, allowing us to ensure all roles are covered on event day.

    **To give all applicants a chance, please remember to only select your top 2 choices.

    Thank you!
