  • Thrives on collective creativity to craft unique and memorable experiences for attendees, capturing their attention and support.

Social Media 

Assist us in developing an effective and creative social media campaign for the Moonlit Memory Walk that will help spread the word about our biggest annual fundraiser!

Project Management

We need someone who is very organized and shines in an admin role! Tasks include things like sending out meeting agendas, recording attendance and taking meeting minutes.

Event Management

As the organizer of a multi-location event, HHA is a support hub for all our regional hosts. As such, the Event Manager collaborates with our specific location hosts, assisting them with what they need to make their event a success. In addition to doing essential relationship-building work, the Event Manager also assists with inventory and budget management. So we’re looking for someone with a diverse skill set who can multi-task!


Prizing  & Sponsorship

Work with us to create sponsorship packages and source prize donations and giveaways for Moonlit Memory Walk participants.

Volunteer Coordination

The most important facet of this role is revising and updating volunteer job descriptions and helping local hosts put together volunteer schedules for all on-site events. This role requires excellent people-skills and good attention to detail.

Guest Experience Manager

This role is perfect for someone who is naturally curious and can easily put themselves in other people’s shoes! The Guest Experience Manager is basically responsible for knowing what’s going on at all the walk locations so they can see what needs to be done - from updating our tribute page, to coordinating social media posts, to ensuring that hosts have up-to-date fundraising numbers on the day of the walk.
