Financial Resources —Did you know that there are many financial resources that can help people living with breast cancer? Find out more


Use your talents in our promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever!  We need you now more than ever. Volunteers provide countless hours contributing their skills to further the Susan G. Komen® promise. We will work with your availability.  Every minute you spend helping gives another minute of hope to those affected by breast cancer. 

There are many opportunities throughout the year for volunteers to help out with individual events, merchandise sales and preparation activities.   Consider one of the following options:

Event-Specific Volunteers (small time commitment):
Held in September each year, our Race for the Cure events in Portland and Bangor are great options for people with limited time.  You can just volunteer on Race day or only in the weeks leading up to the Race.  We also have a new horseback riding event called Ride for the Cure coming up in May of 2014.   All volunteers are valuable in pulling off these large events.  Signing up to volunteer for the events is easy - for most positions, you can sign up online through our automated system, and receive important information and shift reminders right on your computer. 

Online sign up for event volunteers will be linked here as events happen.  If you've never volunteered for us in the past, you can sign up on our general site in the meantime to receive email updates.

Year Round Committee Volunteers: (sign up here)
The Maine Affiliate is busy year round with fundraising efforts as well as activities to carry out our mission, such as educational outreach and grant distribution.   Committee volunteers play a very important role in our success.   Time commitment varies by committee.  Committees include both Race for the Cure events in Bangor and Portland, Education, Fundraising and our new Ride for the Cure horseback riding event.

Occasional Volunteers:  (sign up here)
From time to time, we need help with a small project - data entry, mailings, writing thank you's, etc.
