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.
The American Cancer Society's Relay For Life of North Saint Johns County is currently accepting applications to build a STRONG Event Leadership committee in the Saint Johns community! Join the nationwide movement to fight and end all types of cancer!
Basics of a Relay Event:
All-day volunteer-lead event, similar to a festival or carnival
Teams of people set up tents and fundraise around a track
Members of each team take turns walking around the track for the duration of the event - because "cancer never sleeps"
Food, games and activities provide entertainment and fundraising opportunities
Family-friendly environment for the entire community
Each team member is asked to raise a minimum of $100 in donations prior to the event.
Summary: This is the PERFECT opportunity for someone who wants to make a difference in the Saint Johns community and meet new, inspirational people along the way. Our event is made up of a planning committee; simply put, this is a group of volunteer leaders who support, plan, and execute the Relay For Life event. Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature event; Relays are held all around the world every year in an effort to fight cancer and find a cure!
