Volunteers Wanted

Whether it's the Sun Life Walk to Cure Diabetes for JDRF or any other JDRF event that takes place during the year, they all require a considerable amount of volunteer help.

This help can be pre-event, working on one of many committees involving recruitment of participants, solicitation of sponsorships for items and services, or day-of-event duties such as registration, route supervision, kids activities, barbecue/refreshment area, etc.

For information on the many volunteer opportunities available, please contact Tracey Raycroft at 705.792.4833 or [email protected].

Volunteers are the backbone of JDRF and their support is truly appreciated!
