Volunteer Opportunities at the Dempsey Challenge
Did you know it takes over 500 volunteers to make the Dempsey Challenge a reality? As a volunteer, you can choose from a number of opportunities to help make a difference. Volunteering is an amazing way to connect, have fun and help make lives better for people impacted by cancer.
Volunteer opportunities will be available from September 18-23 for the 2023 event.

Is There a Job for Me?
Yes! Volunteering is for everyone. Coworkers, neighbors, families, friends, and more. Work a rest stop, cheer for participants, or help us go green with our Green Team! We have short and long shifts, before and during the event, for all ages and abilities.
Can Volunteers Join a Team?
Yes! Although it is never required, volunteers are always welcome to be part of a Dempsey Challenge team. You can join riders, walkers, runners, and virtual participants for even more fun and fundraising. Or - make a team of all volunteers and set a team fundraising goal!
