The Relay For Life of Wayne County is recruiting for its 2017 Event Leadership Team and you are invited to join us!

What is Relay For Life? Relay For Life is a community walk that takes place each spring/summer to benefit the American Cancer Society and raise cancer awareness in our community. Just about everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer, and the members of the Event Leadership Team volunteer their time to help organize and host the Relay For Life event each year, making the event a memorable, inspirational, and exciting moment for all participants who attend!

What does the Event Leadership Team do? The Event Leadership Team helps to organize the annual Relay For Life event - assisting with such aspects as marketing, team development, sponsorships, survivorship, logistics, entertainment, activities, ceremonies, food and hospitality, youth recruitment, and more!

When does the committee meet? The Event Leadership Team meets once per month starting in September until our annual event in June. There are also other volunteer opportunities to help sit at tables, pass out information, network with local business owners, and more!

What is the commitment? All Event Leadership Team members are asked to attend one monthly meeting (lasting about 60- 90 minutes) to discuss committee progress, tasks, and goals. Time commitments outside of monthly meetings vary depending on chosen focus. There’s a role for everyone, and it’s easy to fit into your schedule!

How can you learn more? Email Jillian Ference at Jillian.Ference@cancer.org to request additional information! This past year, the Relay For Life of Wayne County raised more than $30,000 to benefit the American Cancer Society! It is because of our Event Leadership Team volunteers that this is possible! Join us - and become a part of a truly amazing experience you will never forget!
