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 Luminaria. Responsibilities include:

  • · Retain and recruit committee volunteers to create a memorable and seamless luminaria experience.
  • · Collaborate with Co-Chair to plan and set goals for the luminaria fundraising and the luminaria experience.
  • · Be an expert on luminaria materials/resources.
  • · Leverage kick-offs, team meetings/rallies, fundraising workshops, bank nights, wrap-ups as opportunities to educate Relayers about the importance of luminaria for fundraising and the significance of luminaria at the event.
  • · Encourage people who make luminaria donations to decorate their own bags to create a more personal and emotional experience.
  • · Collaborate with Fundraising Chair to lead pre-event and day-of-event luminaria fundraising efforts.
  • · Collaborate with the Entertainment & Activities & Ceremonies Chair to plan a powerful 'Remember’ ceremony that is brief, logistically simple, respectful, and emotional.
