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 Logistics. Responsibilities include:

  • · Retain and recruit committee volunteers to help with logistics and hospitality.
  • · Collaborate with Co-Chair to plan and set goals for logistics and hospitality.
  • · Be an expert on logistics and hospitality materials/resources.
  • · Create a master plan for the site selection, overall event schedule, track layout, campsite layout, signage, A/V, electrical, restroom, trash/recycling, tents, safety, risk management, contingency location, security, medical support, set-up, and clean-up needs.
  • · Recruit and train day-of-event volunteers to help create a seamless experience for all participants (e.g. set-up, site maintenance, clean-up, information tent, event greeters, etc.).
  • · Ensure that food/beverage is available during the event (may be vendor or team-driven food/beverage sales as appropriate depending on local health department code).
  • · Leverage kick-offs, team meetings/rallies, fundraising workshops, bank nights, and wrap-ups as opportunities to educate volunteers and answer questions about event logistics and risk management.
  • · Ensure that all other committee volunteers are communicating logistics needs (e.g. staging, sound, tables, tents, power, etc.).
  • Ensure that all logistics and hospitality volunteers/contacts know how much they are appreciated.
