Help us to spread awareness of Van Andel Institute (VAI) through Purple Community events!
We’re looking for motivated individuals to help us educate the community on what Purple Community is all about, be a listening ear to those who’d like to share their cancer or Parkinson’s stories, and be energized about joining the fight against cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.
Whether you are someone living with cancer or Parkinson’s, have someone in your life that is, or just someone who cares about the mission of Van Andel Institute and what we are doing through Purple Community, we would be grateful for whatever time you have to offer.
To sign up for an event or shift, please email Allyson.Huttenga@vai.org with the event name as the subject.
