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. Volunteers provide countless hours contributing their skills to further the Susan G. Komen® promise. We will work with your availability.  Every minute you spend helping gives another minute of hope to those affected by breast cancer.

1.) Event Volunteers
Click here for a list of our current, one-time, volunteer needs. Did you know that Komen East Central Texas is 100% volunteer driven? The large-scale fundraisers and educational events we host would not be possible without the help of over 200 volunteers each year! Two of our times highest needs are during our Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Race for the Cure (Race in Spring and October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month).

2.) Committees
Learn more about our three signature events and consider joining a committee to become heavily involved in making one possible! We also have Technology and Photography committees that we are always seeking new members for.

  • Race for the Cure: The Race for the cure is not just a one day event. There are over 15 committees that work year round to plan & lead the Race experience for the thousands of participants. No matter what your skill set, we need your ideas and expertise.

3.) Office Volunteers
Office volunteers support the promise by providing administrative, clerical and event assistance. Each office volunteer has a weekly 3-4 hour shift. If you’re looking for a regular weekly gig, this may be a great fit! Please call the Komen office for more information at (903)561-6992.

4.) Board of Directors
The expertise of accountants, lawyers, communications and healthcare professionals and more are all needed to make our organization the best that it can be. Passionate about the cause and have profession skills to offer? Consider joining the Komen East Central Texas Board of Directors!
