Founded in 2020, the Seattle YPACS board empowers emerging leaders to engage and network in the Seattle community as ambassadors to the American Cancer Society. United around a shared mission, members help spread awareness about early cancer detection and prevention, fundraise and volunteer to support ACS events, and mobilize young professionals to get involved in the fight against cancer.
Members of YPACS are exposed to the American Cancer Society's network of more than 2 million volunteers worldwide. Board members are given the opportunity to learn from experts in the field, network with other professionals, and engage in countless service opportunities. In 2022, YPACS is pleased to present our first signature event: The Brave Benefit.
2022 YPACS Seattle Supported Events
Each year YPACS supports a series of events to gather the community, educate others about the organization, raise money for a great cause, and have fun!

Some past events have been ResearcHERS, Hope Gala, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, and Relay for Life, and Golf Classic. Check out our upcoming 2022 events below!
