Being of service to others is a main tenet of Colors for a Cure. It requires many people of purpose to create a large community event such as this. We are always on the lookout for people who wish to be of service to their community in a fun, meaningful way. Once people serve with C4C, they quite frequently return for the experience in consecutive years. Please know that we attempt to accommodate each volunteer's wishes but with such a large event and numerous volunteers, we hope you understand that on event day you may be moved to assist in a different area.
