Cambrian Fights Cancer! - American Cancer Society Relay For Life

Luminaria Ceremony Lead

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 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 role of the luminaria lead is to promote awareness and sales of luminaria bags in honor or

in memory of those who have been touched by cancer in the community.

Individuals in this role are creative, organized, and able to coordinate logistics in order to assist

in the development and execution of the Luminaria Ceremony at the event.


  • Educate Event Leadership Team and Relay participants about the importance of the Luminaria

Ceremony and its fundraising potential.

  • Assist ceremonies leadin planning and implementation of Luminaria Ceremony.
  • Collaborate with fundraising lead to host pre-event and day-of-event luminaria fundraising

sales and production efforts.

  • Ensure that Event Leadership Team members include and consider luminaria integration in

their strategy planning.

  • Assist community champions and team ambassadors in their efforts to promote and sell

luminaria within the community.

  • Meet monthly or bi-monthly with the experience lead to discuss goals and progress. 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 at Leigh High School on April 27 th - 28 th consists of inspiring ceremonies, activities and fun, and teams of friends, families, and co-workers coming together to finish the fight against 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.

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!!!!
