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.

Volunteer registration is now full, however we encourage you to take part in the event by registering to walk at any of our starting locations.

Plan to register as a volunteer for Early Check-In, Walker bib and T-shirt pick up, or Pacesetter bib and T-shirt pick up? These volunteers should be comfortable using an iPad.

Corporate Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteer with your work colleagues and get out of the office for a great teambuilding activity. If your company or team is interested in corporate volunteer opportunities, please email Ellen Smith, Volunteer Coordinator.

Melissa Mercon Smith and members of Drums for One and All have provided encouragement and entertainment for Jimmy Fund Walk participants for over five years.

“We are awed by the effort and fortitude displayed by the thousands of walkers each year. We consider it a privilege to do our part to make the journey a little easier for them as they make their way up Heartbreak Hill.”
