Volunteer Roles
Volunteers are essential to the Brain Tumor Walk! Thank you for your dedication  and commitment to the brain tumor community. The Ft. Worth Brain Tumor Walk is unique in that, we are so very blessed to have the North Texas Sweethearts Philanthropy Group there to do everything the day of the walk. We always need help and never turn it away, but also feel free to kick back, relax and enjoy the day thanks to these amazing young ladies.
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 tdekock@braintumor.org
