The Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure is a 5k or 1k walk or run. It is the largest single-day, volunteer-led event in Canada in support of the breast cancer cause. This year’s event will be taking place on Sunday, October 6, 2024.
The Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) is seeking leadership volunteers to help plan and execute Run for the Cure. When you become a committee member, you will be honouring the tens of thousands of women and men diagnosed with breast cancer each year in Canada and directly contributing to breast health awareness and breast cancer research.
Along with the other volunteer committee members, you will work collaboratively with CCS staff to ensure that the systems, national procedures and standards for the Run for the Cure are implemented and that the goals of the event are met.
Join the CIBC Run for the Cure today and help make a real difference for all Canadians impacted by breast cancer.
Must be 18+ to apply and complete the Canadian Cancer Society code of conduct.

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
You understand that cancer can change everything, and you want to help people in your community get access to their Cancer treatment through our Wheels of Hope program.
You are ready to do your best to make a client’s ride to treatment one less thing they have to worry about, allowing them the space and focus to handle their journey in their own way.
You have a valid driver’s license with 3 or fewer demerit points. You carry a minimum of $1M third party liability insurance on your 100% smoke-free and reliable vehicle and are willing to have a criminal record check completed. The Wheels of Hoppe operates Monday to Friday during the day following most hospital hours.
As an organization we will provide you with training and support to prepare you for this important role. You will be supported by a Transportation Coordinator, who will be providing your driving schedule and be there to help you throughout your time on the road.
You will be part of the larger Wheels of Hope team, including over 1600 volunteer drivers and many staff who share your desire to help as many people as possible get to their treatments.
• We ask that you dedicate at minimum a half day to one day weekly, although we are able to accommodate those able to give a few days a month or during particular times of the year (ie summer months, winter months).
• Your schedule will be provided at least three (3) days ahead of time or more and will depend on busy days/periods, your preferences and client demand.
• You agree to initiate and respond with regular, consistent communication between the Transportation Coordinator and the clients you are scheduled to drive by giving them a call the day before to confirm their pickup time.
* As a volunteer, you are a representative and ambassador who promotes the mission and values of the Canadian Cancer Society.
