Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
We are looking for volunteers to help with Relay For Life of South Hampton Roads, a fundraising walk for the American Cancer Society that will be held at 900 City Park Dr, Chesapeake, VA 23320 on June 2, 2017.
Volunteer tasks will vary depending on what day and time you volunteer but will range from helping to set up, serve food at our survivor's reception, light luminaria, clean up, or help to plan the event.
What is Relay For Life?
Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraising event. It offers everyone in a community an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer. Teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Relays are an overnight event, up to 24 hours in length.
Teams of people from all walks of life have fun while raising much-needed funds to fight cancer and raise awareness of cancer prevention and treatment. No matter who you are, there’s a place for you at Relay. Relay For Life is a life-changing event that brings together more than 3.5 million people to:
Celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer. Remember loved ones lost to the disease. Fight Back against the disease
Why We Relay
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life represents the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated.
One in three people will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime. The funds raised at Relay saves lives by funding cutting-edge cancer research, early detection and prevention education, advocacy efforts, and life-affirming patient services. It is because of your involvement that we are able to save lives, help those battling cancer, and empower all to fight back against the disease.
