Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Cancer Assault Challenge is the brain child of Julie and Henry Lopez. After being involved with all sorts of small events such as bake sales, car washes, etc., the Lopez couple felt that their efforts would be better served by coordinating one large event that was more locally focused. In 2015, Julie and Henry founded the Assault Challenge Foundation (501c3) and along with the Board members are looking to create an event that would appeal to the families and youth in our community - both as a fun event and training ground for young people to grow their volunteer tools and skills.
Our signature event, the Cancer Assault Challenge, is a 5K obstacle course run similar to a Tough Mudder(r) or Warrior Run(r). It consists of an extreme run for the competitor and the couch potato run for those who want to have some fun but still raise awareness. The CAC isn’t defined by any one thing. We’re not just about fitness, or motivation, or making anyone "better." CAC is 100% attitude. Our event is designed to get YOU OFF the couch, out of the house, having fun together and raising cancer awareness. In groups. In costumes. In mud. We don’t require training or any particular level of athleticism. Instead, we encourage you to "come as you are". Hey, it’s all for a good cause: proceeds benefit the MACC Fund.
