Texas 4000 is a small Austin based non-profit dedicated to fighting cancer by spreading Hope, Knowledge, and Charity. Each year a group of University of Texas students raise money in this fight by riding their bikes from Austin, Texas to Anchorage, Alaska. During the ride, they stop to share their inspirational stories along with powerful life-saving information about cancer prevention to towns big and small. Texas 4000 is not only comprised of these students, but the countless individuals who support this cause, such as the board of directors, sponsors, host families, donors, and volunteers.
We are currently looking for passionate and eager individuals to contribute to an amazing cause. These four volunteer internship opportunities will directly support Texas 4000 programs, activities, projects, and administrative tasks.
