Volunteers Needed for American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Bakersfield

Bakersfield, California (October 6, 2016) -The American Cancer Society is seeking volunteers in Bakersfield to be a part of the annual Relay For Life event scheduled for May 6, 2017. Community volunteers lead and organize each local event with the support of Society staff. From assisting with planning the annual event to taking part the day-of, there are various volunteer opportunities for interested community members.

A meeting will be held for interested community members on Tuesday November 1, 2016 at 5:30pm at the American Cancer Society Office, 1831 Truxtun Ave. Suite 150, Bakersfield, California 93301.

The Relay For Life program is a community-based event where teams and individuals camp out at a school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team has at least one participant on the track at all times and participates in raising funds to support the American Cancer Society’s mission to finish the fight against cancer. Four million people participated in more than 6,000 events worldwide last year.

"The Relay For Life movement is all about our community uniting to finish the fight against cancer," said Sherry Green, volunteer. "We rely on the support of volunteers to help make the Bakersfield event a success."

If you would like to join the Relay For Life of Bakersfield as a volunteer or team participant, visit us online at or or call us at 661.327.7827.
