Walk Volunteer
Chris Lopez, 2016 Jimmy Fund Walk Volunteer of the Year
Chris has been a dedicated volunteer for the Jimmy Fund Walk for more than 10 years, most recently taking on the additional responsibility of site coordinator (lead volunteer) at the Copley Square Finish Line. In addition to his commitment to the Jimmy Fund Walk, Chris also volunteers and participates in numerous other Jimmy Fund events.
  • Technology experience preferred: If you plan to register as a volunteer for Early Check-in, Walker Bib and T-shirt Pick Up, or Pacesetter Bib and T-shirt Pick Up, you should be comfortable using iPad technology, as you may be asked to use an electronic check-in system instead of paper booklets.
  • Group volunteer opportunities: We are actively seeking volunteer groups to staff refueling stations along the course, serve as cheer squads, and more. If your group is interested, please email Ellen Smith.
  • Volunteering together is a great teambuilding activity for colleagues. If your company or team is interested in corporate volunteer opportunities, please visit our Sponsors page.
