Make a Difference as an Event Volunteer

The Jimmy Fund Walk is supported by a group of dedicated volunteers. Volunteer jobs range from handing out snacks to cheering along the course—volunteers are vital to a successful day.

If you are younger than 18 years old, an adult chaperone must register with you for the same shift, location, and position.
