Would you recommend American Cancer Society?

by Kimberly J. from Virginia Beach, VA (October 7, 2009)
This was a very fun and upbeat event that pulled a lot of younger volunteers from the area. It was well organized, considering the size of the operation, and only promises to expand over the coming years. Although a little chaotic, it was really fun to see all of the groups gear up for the walk, meet friends and family, and cheer each other on. I would recommend this volunteer opportunity to any who would like to participate in a large-scale fundraising event.
