It takes an army of volunteers to make Light The Night a successful and memorable event. Volunteers are needed for event planning, Walk night logistics and our Executive Committees. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please complete form below or contact your local Light The Night staff.
Walk Night Volunteer
As you can imagine, it takes a tremendous number of volunteers to make the Light The Night Walk run smoothly. Volunteers are needed to assist in areas such as: set-up and break-down, check-in, finish-line cheerers, water stops, route guides, team photos, mission tent, incentives and other areas.
Pre-Walk In-House Volunteers
In-house support is needed throughout the year. Opportunities include mailings, stuffing packets, filing, collating and other general office support.
We are in need of individuals who are willing to volunteer to be our Light The Night phone support. Tasks range from calling participants about team fundraising to securing in-kind donations.
We are looking for volunteers to Secret Shop with our retail fundraising partners! Local stores help collect donations by asking customers at check-out if they would like to donate to LLS. To ensure that these stores are actively participating in the fundraising campaign, we assign volunteers to Secret Shop and go through the check-out line to pay for their assigned purchase. If the cashier asks if the volunteer would like to donate, the volunteer is instructed to thank to cashier, let him or her know that they are an LLS Secret Shopper and give the cashier a gift card as a reward. If the cashier does not ask the volunteer to donate, the volunteer is instructed to explain that they are a secret shopper, thank the cashier for his or her efforts, remind the cashier to ask every customer if they would like to donate and let them know that we will be back to Secret Shop again in the near future.
Executive Leadership Council
This group plays a vital role in increasing revenue for the Light The Night Walk by securing corporate sponsors and/or teams.
