About

Are you Determined to find a cure for cancer? Or Passionate about honoring cancer survivors and their caregivers? Maybe you are Innovative like all of our volunteers.

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then Relay For Life of Millbrae event is looking for you!

This opportunity is a for someone who is hands on, who wants more than a 1-day gig passing out water to runners and wants to find that cure for cancer. Relay For Life is planned, manned and produced by an Event Leadership Team of volunteers from Millbrae. We invest in our volunteers through group training and 1-on-1 coaching from an American Cancer Society staff member. As the single largest fundraising event in the world, you get to be part of something pretty spectacular; it is truly a global movement. No experience necessary, however, a go-getter attitude is essential!

Lead role:
The Ceremonies Lead oversees all ceremonies that take place throughout the Relay For Life event. Individuals in this role are creative, organized, and familiar with or willing to learn about the mission, history, and tradition of the American Cancer Society ceremonies.
Specific tasks include:
* Plan and coordinate the Relay For Life event ceremonies.
* Collaborate with Luminaria Lead to develop and implement the Luminaria ceremony.
* Collaborate with Relay Activities Lead and Relay Entertainment Lead regarding schedule of events.
* Collaborate with Survivors and Caregivers Lead to ensure survivor and caregiver ceremonies are meaningful and impactful.
* Collaborate with Mission Lead and ACS CAN Lead to develop and execute motivating Celebrate, Remember, and Fight Back Ceremonies that empower participants to take action in their fight against cancer.
* Collaborate with Event Leadership Team to develop and execute Spirit of Relay ceremony.
* Meet monthly or bi-monthly with the Experience Leader to discuss goals and progress.

So...at this point you may be wondering...WHAT IS RELAY FOR LIFE?

At Relay For Life events, communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much. This community event is held on a local high school track or park and consists of inspiring ceremonies, activities and fun, and teams of friends, families, and co-workers coming together to finish the fight against cancer! The funds raised truly make a difference in the fight against cancer - just ask one of the nearly 14 million cancer survivors who will celebrate another birthday this year! Each Relay For Life event is special to its community, but the movement's true power lies in the combined commitment of thousands of participants, volunteers, and supporters to help the American Cancer Society save lives from cancer. Commitment requires regular check ins with your team lead and/or ACS staff member (in person, over the phone or via email) during Relay Season (January-August depending on event) and 2-3 hours a week of additional volunteer efforts. Schedule of work is up to you.
