Opportunity Description:

ABOUT Ride for Cancer powered by BMO Bank of Montreal hosted by the QEII Foundation is the fastest growing and largest fundraising event in Atlantic Canada. On October 3, 2020, over 800 riders will embark on an epic journey with one common goal: to transform cancer care at the QEII Health Sciences Centre.   OUR IMPACT Since 2015, our Ride community has raised $2.6 million net to transform cancer care here at home in Atlantic Canada.  Lives have been changed, patients have been saved and countless families have felt the impact of funds raised through the Ride community – all for the 1 in 2 Atlantic Canadians who will face a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime.   In 2020, our Ride community will bring the QEII Health Sciences Centre one step closer to introducing a new, world-class procedure – a breast seed brachytherapy program.   Access to a breast seed brachytherapy program will help ensure that some early stage breast cancer patients – from every community across our province – can spend less time at the QEII undergoing radiotherapy. This program will reduce the number of treatments required from 30 to 1. For patients, this means more time at home, focusing on what matters most.   JOIN OUR FIGHT We need you to face the fight with us – join Ride for Cancer powered by BMO Bank of Montreal as our Volunteer Lead to help support our 200 volunteers on this epic journey.   Everyone has been touched by cancer. Join our fight against cancer and by coming onboard as our Volunteer Lead, you can play an important part in this epic day by helping to ensure that activities are delivered safely and enjoyably for all those participating!   Volunteer Lead, Ride for Cancer   DESCRIPTION We’re looking for a Volunteer Lead who will support with the management and coordination of 200+ volunteers for Ride for Cancer powered by BMO Bank of Montreal.   RESPONSIBILITIES Primary point of contact for volunteer coordinators (medical, hospitality, logistics, pit stops, safety, etc.) Supports with the development and execution of volunteer schedules, volunteer orientations and other volunteer-related documents Manages the volunteer kit assemblies and volunteer shirt giveaways Supports with the volunteer logistics and experience at Bike Drop-off and Event Kit Pick-up (October 2, 2020) and on event day (October 3, 2020)   REQUIREMENTS Strong communication and organizational skills Experience in managing volunteers and/or volunteering at events considered an asset Respects and maintains the confidentiality of other volunteers, donors and partners Criminal Record check is required – event to cover cost Must have a valid driver’s license and access to a vehicle Must sign confidentiality and event waiver   COMMITMENT June 2020 – October 2020 2-3 hours per week with some availability on weekends Must be available for all volunteer orientation sessions (dates TBD) Must be available all day on October 2, 2020 and on October 3, 2020   BENEFITS Work and volunteer experience Opportunity to get involved with an amazing event, community and cause Volunteer Lead perks (including event team swag) Make a significant impact on the lives of cancer patients and their families in Nova Scotia   CONTACT To apply, please submit your resume and tell us why you would be a great addition to our Ride for Cancer team, to Mia Johnston, Event Experience and Partnerships Officer at mia.johnston@qe2foundation.ca.
