CCONS is Looking for Volunteers!
Help Support the Lymphoma Research Foundation’s
2015 Chicago Lymphoma Walk
Since we did such a great job at last year’s Annual Walk and recently at the Derby Day Fundraiser, CCONS has been asked for more help!!!
We are looking for volunteers to donate their time on Sunday, August 9, 2015 at this year’s walk on the lakefront! The event is located at Montrose Harbor, 4400 N Simonds Drive, Chicago, IL 60640.
We are looking for volunteers to work from 7:00am to 12:30pm. Volunteer time can be divided into shifts (e.g. 7:00-10:00, 9:30-12:30) if you are unable to work the entire time.  We need volunteers to help with the following areas: event set up, registration, and t-shirt and water distribution.
We hope you can donate a few hours of time for a great cause in this beautiful lakefront setting.  Please email Gina Menyah, CCONS Director at Large – Community Outreach ASAP if you are interested in volunteering at the following email address: gina.menyah@gmail.com
