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 Mission Delivery. Responsibilities include:

  • · Retain and recruit committee volunteers to help with mission education and activation (i.e. create opportunities for people to eat healthy foods, to be physically active, to avoid the sun, etc.).
  • · Collaborate with Chair to plan and set goals for mission education and activation.
  • · Be an expert on mission-related and materials/resources about how the Society helps people stay well (prevention) and get well (screening) and finds cures (research education).
  • · Cultivate relationships with volunteers and community members 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 how to stay well and get well.
  • · Collaborate with the Entertainment & Activities & Ceremonies Chair and the Advocacy Chair to plan a powerful 'Fight Back’ ceremony that includes mission education and activation.
  • · Collaborate with Logistics Chair to ensure the event’s food/beverage plan takes into account the Society’s nutrition guidelines.
  • · Ensure that all other committee volunteers are considering mission education and activation in their plans.
  • Ensure that all mission volunteers/contacts know how much they are appreciated.
