Volunteer Information


With a variety of exciting and delicious positions available, there is a job for everyone, including individuals, teams, school groups, corporate groups, friends and family. Without the help of our amazing volunteers, this event would not be possible.

Your support means helping to make life better for children with cancer in our community. Thank you!  And, to sweeten the deal, all volunteers receive a super-soft donut crew t-shirt and a yummy Dunkin' Donuts breakfast.

Please email Laura Jarrett, Volunteer Coordinator, at laura@laurajarrett.com with any questions.
