Our volunteers are fundamental in helping us raise funds and awareness. Find out how you can get involved and help women with ovarian cancer!

We couldn't continue our work without our committed volunteers, who give up their time to help us raise funds and awareness.

I lost my mum suddenly to ovarian cancer in 2015. She passed away six weeks after her diagnosis, and it tore our family apart. I decided I had to turn this awful sadness into something positive. Being a volunteer for such a great charity in mum's memory has helped me get through these last four years, so thank you Target Ovarian Cancer for welcoming me in when I needed you.

As part of the official Team Target cheer squad, you'll be placed on the route along with other volunteers, supporters and Target Ovarian Cancer staff. You'll get a t-shirt and cheering materials, and will be able to meet our fantastic team of runners and help celebrate their success.
