Become a Reach Leader

Reach Leadership is a nationwide movement of high school and college students committed to helping cancer patients and their families through the Family Reach mission. 

Becoming a chapter member is a win-win: You can gain invaluable hands-on skills through volunteering and planning fundraising events, while raising critical funds and awareness to help families overcome the financial side effects of a cancer diagnosis.

Who are Reach Leaders?

The mission of Reach Leadership is to raise funds and awareness for families facing the financial burden of cancer in our chapter communities while helping students develop their skills and reach their goals.
