Volunteering Opportunities


Becoming a cancer charity volunteer can be a most rewarding experience! The support of our volunteers is an integral part of the Australian Cancer Research Foundation to ensure we continue to reduce the impact of cancer through world class cancer research. Volunteering is a positive and inspiring way to help in the fight against cancer and your enthusiasm, positivity and a dedication are the only qualifications you need! Below are some of the volunteering options available at the moment:

Sporting Events

Want to be a part of a sporting event without actually having to do any sport? Then this is the job for you! We have lots of sporting events coming up and we need your help. Volunteering opportunities at these events could include any of the following: Setting up and packing up ACRF stand, Filling and handing out drinks to runners, Assisting with baggage collection, Handing out medals at the finish line, Cheering on ACRF runners
