FitSTEPS for Life needs charismatic, uplifting center volunteers to assist at our 5 East Texas fitness centers designed for cancer patients. Please call Allie at (903) 561-0149 if interested. Hours and locations are flexible.
While at the center, you'll have the opportunity to support cancer patients and survivors in aerobic exercise, muscle strengthening, and stretching techniques. These programs are designed to assist patients in acheiving and maintaining as much functional mobility and endurance as possible during their cancer experience. FitSTEPS for Life is the only known evidence-based cancer rehabilitation program in the United States that is free, community-based and achieves unprecedented immediate benefits for cancer survivors-at diagnosis to post treatment.
So where do you fit in? You'll greet participants, help maintain a safe environment, and troubleshoot any problems, as well as keep in touch with staff if any problems do arise. No fitness experience is necessary and the needed safety training will be provided. Your role is vital. Without volunteers, we wouldn't be able to keep our centers open. If you're looking for a volunteer position where you get to see the difference you're making, this is it!
