Volunteer for Candlelighters


More than 10,000 hours of programming takes place annually to ensure our families have the support they need during their journey with childhood cancer.  

We rely on volunteers to help with the day-to-day function of the office, providing direct-service to our families in the hospital, and during our monthly family activities. Additionally, we are always looking for committed volunteers to help us with our four major events: Cancer Warrior Breakfast, Ride For A Child and Harvest of Hope.
