Volunteers are essential to the Sacramento Brain Freeze! Thank you for your dedication to the brain tumor cause. Training is provided when you arrive. We will do our best to match you with your preferred volunteer role; however, due to demand this is not always possible. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to jprentiss@braintumor.org
