About

Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraising activity. It is an overnight, team event where each community comes together for one day and one night to honor cancer survivors and their caregivers, to remember those we have lost, and to fight back against a disease that takes too much from too many. Teams of approximately 8-15 people commit to raising $100 each and take turns walking or running relay-style for 24 hours. We are currently seeking volunteer to help with the planning and implementation of our 2014 event in Menlo Park.

Relay For Life of Menlo Park needs Volunteers to Help with Advocacy. Responsibilities include:

  • · Retain and recruit committee volunteers to help with advocacy education and activation (i.e. create opportunities for participants to join the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN)).
  • · Collaborate with Chair to plan and set goals for advocacy education and activation.
  • · Be an expert on the Society’s legislative priorities and ACS CAN materials/resources.
  • · Cultivate relationships with volunteers and community members who have directly benefitted from the Society’s advocacy efforts, and identify those who are willing to share their stories in person, in writing, and/or with the media.
  • · Leverage kick-offs, team meetings/rallies, fundraising workshops, bank nights, event days, and wrap-ups as opportunities to educate Relayers about the Society’s advocacy efforts/successes, legislative action alerts, and opportunities to join ACS CAN.
  • · Collaborate with the Entertainment & Activities & Ceremonies Chair and the Mission Chair to plan a powerful 'Fight Back’ ceremony that includes advocacy education and activation.
  • · Ensure that all other committee volunteers are considering advocacy education and activation in their plans.
  • Ensure that all advocacy volunteers/contacts know how much they are appreciated.
