Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The American Cancer Society is the nationwide community based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer through research, education, advocacy, and service.
DetermiNation is the American Cancer Society's nation of athletes determined to end cancer. This powerful and inspiring movement saves lives by enabling athletes to dedicate their training and participation in marathons, triathlons, cycling, and other endurance events to a lifesaving effort to fight a disease that has already taken too many lives. Over the years, thousands of athletes have had an experience of a lifetime while raising millions for the fight against all types of cancer. With every step taken and every mile conquered, these determined athletes are helping create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
Being a DetermiNation program volunteer is a great opportunity to meet others passionate about saving lives from cancer, share your endurance event experience by helping and mentoring new athletes, make lifelong friends, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much. DetermiNation committee and race weekend volunteer opportunities are available.
