Be a Volunteer

Amy S. & Stephanie O. Survior and wife. 9 and 13-time participants.


There are two ways to help on the Susan G. Komen 3-Day®. The major difference is how much time you have to commit.


You should register as a crew member if you can dedicate yourself to three full days, plus the All-Crew Kick-Off on the Thursday before the event. Crew members are not required to fundraise, but must pay a registration fee. Click here for information about crew.


Volunteer opportunities are generally a commitment of a few hours during a single day. On-event volunteer opportunities will be posted once crew registration is full for that Komen 3-Day event (or approximately 2 months prior to the event, if crew registration does not fill). Because of the incredible volunteer support we enjoy, many of our volunteer positions fill up within one week after being announced in the Volunteer Bulletin.
