American Cancer Society volunteers have the opportunity to make a difference in their communities by having FUN planning FUN and helping out at our local events. We are looking for volunteers interested in helping at a variety of county wide events including Relay for Life, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and other annual fundraisers benefitting the American Cancer Society.
Relay For Life is a global movement that takes place in over 5,000 communities across the world. It is a "party with a purpose" where we celebrate cancer survivors, remember those lost, and fight back against cancer. The event involves members of the community, teams, a DJ, live entertainment, food & FUN! Funds raised through Relay For Life support all types of cancers.
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a non-competitive 5K walk uniting communities to support each other by honoring those touched by the disease and raise awareness and funds to save lives from breast cancer. Thanks to the determination of Making Strides supporters, the American Cancer Society funds innovative breast cancer research; promote education and risk reduction; and provides comprehensive patient support to those who need it most.
Our planning committees needs your help to bring unique fun to the events! We need volunteers to help in various areas: General day of event volunteers, entertainment & activities, leadership, sponsorship, team and participant recruitment, marketing & public relations, logistics, volunteer recognition, ceremonies, Luminaria, fundraising, donation requests, survivor and caregiver activities, online/web site, social media, advocacy, mission, team mentor and youth activities.
