Steps to Become a CKF Volunteer

CKF Teams


Our Arts team makes the cards (handmade and E-cards) and other crafts we send out to cancer hospitals.

The volunteers on this team do not have to be technically good at art but should be willing to put their best efforts in to design cards/crafts for patients.

Our Events team works towards spreading awareness about Cancer Kids First and pediatric cancer in general. All "service" work needed that doesn't relate to fundraising or arts is what our Events team volunteers do! Members may be asked to make/pass out informative flyers or participate in protests/other events like virtual 5k's for childhood cancer. These volunteers also sign petitions to pass certain health laws regarding pediatric cancer and campaign for awareness. Fundraising service opportunities are also sent to this team.

The volunteers on this team should be communicative and collaborative, while passionate about making a change regarding childhood cancer policies.

Our Fundraising team is combined with our Events team, but is key to raising money for Cancer Kids First. This team participates in CKF fundraisers to help us raise the most amount of money possible to fund our programs.

The volunteers on this team should have and know how to utilize their connections in order to escalate CKF's donations.
