Three Walk of Hope Volunteers

This cause needs champions just like you.

Every action, big or small, helps further progress against ovarian cancer. As the only national charity dedicated solely to the disease, our reach is vast, but we are relentless. Our goals are achievable with your help. There are plenty of ways to get involved and become a champion for this cause. Are you with us?

We act together

Become a volunteer 

Volunteers have the power to make a difference in the lives of people across the country affected by this disease. When you volunteer with us, you become part of our teal community, working together to make change a reality. Please consider becoming an Ovarian Cancer Canada volunteer by donating your time or talents.

Volunteer opportunities include:

  • Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope committee: Help organize Walk logistics, gain community support, obtain sponsors and manage or support on-site activities on Walk day. 
  • Event support: From logistics to registration to sponsorship at events across the country, you can support events planned by Ovarian Cancer Canada in your community.  
  • Donating your time and services in support of this cause: Photography, videography and other donated skills can be used to spur our community to action. 
  • Speak at virtual or in-person events and sessions on behalf of Ovarian Cancer Canada: By sharing your experiences you show others affected they are not alone and put a face to the disease for supporters. 
  • And much more.
