Board members foster strategic relationships within their communities, creating new sources of sustainable funding, driving event participation and increasing awareness of the CureSearch mission. Each Community Board is led by a committed group of volunteer leaders with experience and expertise in business, fundraising, marketing, events, healthcare, advocacy and more.
