Pit Stop Volunteer - Shine Night Walk - London
Apply right now!
Why we need you:
Across the weekend of Saturday 21st- Sunday 22nd September 2019, 12,000 walkers will be walking 13.1 or 26.2 miles to raise over an incredible £2 million for Cancer Research UK – but they need you to help them achieve their marathon challenge!
Having the amazing support and endless enthusiasm of some friendly faces truly makes Shine an unforgettable experience. Join the Shine Volunteer Team and help us to beat cancer sooner.
What will I be doing?
Get stuck in at one of our pit stops where you’ll be helping walkers to get some refreshments to take a well-deserved break! Our pit stops are a support hub for our walkers and we need teams of volunteers to be proactive and compassionate to make sure that walkers feel re-energised to continue taking steps to the all-important finish line.
You’ll be working as a team so whether you’re looking for the opportunity to meet some like-minded people or experience the event alongside friends and family this is a really fun, social and active role to sign up for.
‘Being able to help the wonderful Shine walkers, and be there for them with water/a smile/advice when they needed it’
