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 Redwood City.

Relay For Life of Redwood City needs Volunteers to Help with Survivor & Caregiver Engagement & Recruitment. Responsibilities include:

  • · Retain and recruit committee volunteers to help with survivor and caregiver recruitment, recognition, and engagement.

  • · Cultivate relationships with survivors and caregivers who have directly benefitted from the Society’s 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 what it means to be a survivor and/or a caregiver, to recognize survivors and caregivers, and to further engage survivors and caregivers..
  • · Collaborate with the Entertainment & Activities & Ceremonies Chair to plan powerful ceremonies that give Relayers an opportunity to celebrate survivors, to thank caregivers, and to remember loved ones.
  • · Collaborate with the Mission Chair to ensure all survivors and caregivers are educated about the Society’s cancer prevention, screening, support services, research, and advocacy efforts.
  • · Ensure that all other committee volunteers are considering survivor and caregiver recruitment, recognition, and engagement in their plans.
