The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Great Strides is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's largest national fundraising event. Tens of thousands of co-workers, friends and family come together each year as one community for one cause...to help find a cure for CF. Committee Members work diligently from October through May to recruit volunteers and teams. They generate revenue by incorporating strategic initiatives, such as corporate recruitment events, kick-off parties, Team Leader rallies, pin-up campaigns, committee development and corporate team participation.
Committee Members communicate and promote the mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation throughout community and inspire others to volunteer with Great Strides. Active participation in committee meetings is expected. Generally, the time commitment for Committee Members is between 5 to 10 hours each month.
