Volunteer Opportunities

Our volunteers come in all sizes, shapes and colors, but their hearts are pink and their caring has no limit. Are you a leader, a thinker or a doer? Use your talents in our promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever!  We need you now more than ever. Every minute you spend helping gives another minute of hope to those affected by breast cancer.

Program areas include:

  • Communications
  • Community Programs Advocacy
  • Development and Fundraising
  • Education
  • Race Planning
  • Young Professionals

To be considered for one of the above volunteer positions, please fill out the Volunteer Application.

New Volunteer Orientation
We ask that volunteers assisting on a year-round basis attend a new volunteer orientation so we can help you become more familiar with all that Komen Columbus does on a local, as well as national level.  Orientations are held on a quarterly basis at our office in Westerville.

Please contact Natalie Guagenti if you are interested in attending the next orientation.

Breast Cancer 101
Breast Cancer 101 classes are also offered on a quarterly basis to those volunteers who are interested in becoming a Komen Ambassador, helping to share basic breast health messages to those in our community at various health fairs and events throughout the year.

Please contact us if you’re interested in attending the next Breast Cancer 101 session. 

Race Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteers play a vital role in the  Komen Columbus Race for the Cure.  Their passion and commitment is what makes our race a success and today the largest Race for the Cure in the country!

As you can imagine, it takes hundreds of volunteers the week before and on race day to ensure that we provide the best experience possible to our participants.  That’s why we need YOU!

All Race Volunteer Opportunities will be posted online in  February 2015.

If you are interested in taking on a leadership role for the race, please complete the volunteer application above.
