Campbell Fights Cancer! EVENT LOGISTICS OPPORTUNITY!!!
1 person is interested
We are looking for volunteers with leadership qualities, a desire to change the world and a passionate dislike of cancer. We’re looking for long term, hands on, rock star volunteers who want more than a 1 day gig passing out water to runners. Relay For Life is planned, manned and produced by an Event Leadership Team of volunteers from the community where the event is held. 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. No experience necessary, however, a go-getter attitude is essential!
The logistics lead is primarily responsible for providing a safe, comfortable, and seamless experience for all Relay For Life participants.
Individuals in this role are organized and pay strong attention to detail in order to manage a comprehensive event execution plan that represents the mission and tradition of the American Cancer Society Relay For Life event within the community.
SPECIFIC TASKS INCLUDE:
Organize and create implementation plan for site selection, event schedule, event layout, signage, electrical and mechanical materials, restrooms, trash and signage, tents, safety, risk management, contingency location, security, medical support, set-up, and clean-up needs
Collaborate with community champions and projects manager to recruit and train day-of-event volunteers
Assist with coordination of hospitality planning and execution
Ensure all American Cancer Society risk management standards, guidelines, and procedures are adhered to
Work with the ACS Community Manager, event lead, and experience lead to determine appropriate vendors and to secure necessary items for logistic needs
Meet monthly or bi-monthly with the experience lead 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 (September-August.. However we really ramp up in January!) and 2-3 hours a week of additional volunteer efforts. Schedule of work is up to you. For more information on Relay For Life and/or the American Cancer Society, please visit www.relayforlife.org or www.cancer.org
Sound like something you'd be great at?? Perhaps you'd only like a bite-size piece of this role?? Perhaps you & a family member or a friend interested in working on this together?? We would LOVE to chat & truly look forward to working with you to create a world without cancer!!!!
We'll work with your schedule.
