Project Overview

We are seeking a volunteer with event planning skills to support planning, outreach, and implementation for our #MOVE4CancerPrevention virtual fundraiser in April. We need someone with experience and skills to support event marketing to potential sponsors and participants, help us figure out event logistics (including support for participants who raise funds and help figuring out "prizes" and other incentives), and provide overall guidance in the lead up to and implementation of this week-long event.

The Cancer Free Economy Network's #MOVE4CancerPrevention event will take place during National Minority Health Awareness Week (April 16-22). It's a fun way for supporters across the country (and around the world) to raise awareness of environmental justice issues that contribute to increased cancer rates in communities of color while raising funds for cancer prevention. We're looking for an event planning expert to help our team develop compelling materials for our 60 member organizations and our social media followers to use to promote participation in the event. We could use support planning and managing virtual event logistics, outreach to potential sponsors and supporters, and all of the little things that go into moving an event from "good" to truly impactful. If you're looking for a fun way to make a difference while connecting to organizations and experts who care about cancer prevention and environmental justice, please join us!

We have a core team that has started planning for this event. We held our first-ever fundraising event last year, and we learned a lot. We're building on the tools, materials, and messages we developed last year. We're building out a virtual event platform and have begun communications with our member organizations to get them excited about the event. We have a work plan that we've adapted from last year, and we're starting to work on it, but we realize we need more expertise, experience, and support.


Nonprofit Overview

We believe the water we drink, the air we breathe, the food we eat, the products we use, and the places where we live, learn, work, and play should not make us sick.

We are a dynamic collaborative multi-sector network, led primarily by leaders from BIPOC and disproportionately impacted communities, seeking solutions that are broader and deeper than what we can accomplish on our own. Our strategies are derived from an in-depth cross-sector analysis of the system that keeps us stuck and sick. This process led us to a common goal:

Within our generation, we will lift the burden of cancer and other diseases by driving a dramatic and equitable transition from toxic substances in our lives, our communities, and our economy to safe and healthy alternatives for all.

Together, we can move beyond incremental changes and bring about a just transition to a cancer-free economy that works for all people and the planet.
