Volunteer Spotlight

Our terrific volunteers make the BRIGHT Run possible. Many of them volunteer at the event itself; others participate year-round in a variety of roles. We couldn’t do it without them all!

This month, meet Michael Moreton, 35, of Hamilton. Mike, a married father of one, has been volunteering with BRIGHT Run for the past six years.

Why/how did you originally get involved with BRIGHT Run? What kinds of volunteer duties did you perform?

I originally got involved with BRIGHT Run because my wife was so passionate about the cause and I wanted to help. Unfortunately, breast cancer touches us all and while I’m fortunate enough not to have had personal experience with it, my wife Aryn’s grandmother is a breast cancer survivor and she inspires us all.

I started my BRIGHT Run volunteering by helping with set up and tear down and have since become the clean-up and tear-down volunteer captain.

If you could summarize your BRIGHT Run experience in one word, what would it be?


How would you describe your BRIGHT Run experience to people considering volunteering with BRIGHT Run?

You’re donating a very small portion of your time for such a great cause and even if you’re only helping out in a small capacity, it greatly impacts everyone involved. I highly recommend BRIGHT Run to anyone interested in volunteering their time. It is a very rewarding experience.
