Welcome to the PKD Foundation’s Syrcause Chapter Website!
Walk Coordinator Needed
The Syracuse Chapter is currently seeking a volunteer Walk Coordinator. This is a vital leadership role for the PKD Foundation and the Syracuse Chapter. The Foundation will provide you with support tools, including an invitation to attend our annual leadership training conference.
As a local Walk Coordinator, you will be responsible for:
- organizing logistics for the Walk
- recruiting volunteers
- securing sponsorship
- recruiting and encouraging team captains and participants
- promoting the Walk within the community, and helping raise awareness of PKD and the Foundation.
This event is a great opportunity for collaborative team planning. This role needs an average of 2-3 hours per week, with additional time commitments at key planning stages. If you are interested in sharing your talents with PKD patients, we would enjoy talking with you about this position. Please contact Cindy Wissinger at email@example.com.
We have recently hired a new Syracuse Chapter Coordinator, Stan Munro. We are still seeking a walk coordinator to plan a Walk for PKD in Syracuse in the fall of 2013. If you would like to get involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Our volunteers are what this organization was built on and they will carry us into the future. Volunteer with us today and help make a brighter tomorrow for PKD patients and families in your local community!
