About

Lead small groups of cancer survivors, caregivers and volunteers (usually 4-10 people) on easy walks in parks and multi-use paths. Evenings after work when it's light out, and weekends any time of year. We will provide training in understanding the common physical and emotional challenges that cancer survivors may face, how to make the expereience a welcoming and enjoybale one, and what to do in the event of an accident. Must provide own transportation. Ideally, volunteer is willing to lead walks at least once per month, preferably more often. Leader can choose location and distance, but walks should generally be between 1/2 mile and 2 miles on paved sidewalks or improved trails.
