Committee members are needed to organize and recruit teams, seek community support, coordinate logistics, find refreshments and prizes, plan entertainment and lend their support in any way.
Team Captains coordinate teams of 8 to 15 members to participate in the largest fundraising walk in the nation. Relay For Life unites friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools and churches...people from all walks of life. Teams seek sponsorship prior to the Relay, all with the goal of supporting a cure for cancer.
Relay For Life is the signature event of the American Cancer Society. It is a fun-filled overnight event that mobilizes communities throughout the country to celebrate survivors, remember loved ones and empower others to fight back against a disease that takes too much.
"The American Cancer Society Relay For Life raises awareness about the progress against cancer while also raising funds to fight the disease," said Jennifer Redman, Community Manager for the American Cancer Society. "Individuals who are willing to give their time and energy to this exciting event, as a volunteer or participant, have made a commitment to fight back against cancer and let the community know that cancer can be beat."
