Picture Yourself in This T-Shirt

Calling all volunteers — the 2009 Komen Orange County Race for the Cure Committee needs your time and talent. “Volunteers are the lifeline of the Komen Orange County Affiliate. It takes a village, literally, to ensure that the Race is safe and fun for all participants,” says Cindy Brenneman, Director of Volunteer Services for the Affiliate.

The numbers back her up – on Race weekend more than 1,200 volunteers help with a variety of tasks. Volunteers this year will stand out in their sunny yellow T-shirts and will help with parking, keeping the course clear, working information booths, emptying trash boxes, cheering on walkers, leading “I Am the Cure” chants . . . pretty much everything so that 30,000 participants have fun and stay safe.

Volunteers are needed for pre-Race outreach (which is happening now); set up on Saturday, September 26; Race day on Sunday, September 27 and tying up details after the Race in the Komen office.

There is always a particular need for strong individuals who can assist with loading and unloading trucks and moving boxes. Does your company have a community outreach program? Volunteer as a group! Volunteers are needed to fundraise by signing up for “Sleep in for the Cure” or joining a team — you’ll still have time to volunteer.

Besides getting the ever-popular volunteer T-shirt, you’ll be rewarded with water and food when needed, meeting other fantastic people and knowing you have made an impact in the fight against breast cancer. Where to go to get started? Please go to our website www.komenoc.org click on Race for the Cure, volunteering, and sign up right away.
