Why Volunteer For Breast Cancer Action Kingston?
What we Do
BCAK volunteers are always kept busy helping out where needed during the year. Various business organizations choose BCAK as their charity of choice in the Kingston and area community which often require volunteer help. Our volunteers are called to assist with the many jobs needed to help run an event or fundraiser smoothly, both before, during and afterwards. We also use our volunteers to help spread awareness of our organization at community events, health fairs, and the like.
Our events include: BCAK’s Annual Walk/Run; International Women’s Day events and fundraisers, BCAK’s Annual “Share the Care” Golf Tournament; and the Annual Taylor Automall “Drive for a Cause”.
Without our volunteers BCAK would not exist and their hard work and dedication allows visibility and awareness of BCAK in the community and also promotion of the programs and services we provide. The funds raised are used to assist the women, men and families affected by breast cancer.
