The Canadian Cancer Society is a national community based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.
Relay For Life is your chance to help create a world where no one fears cancer. When you, your family, friends and colleagues come together with Canadians in communities across the country for this powerful event, you not only help save more lives through ground-breaking cancer research but also support those living with cancer today.
The Canadian Cancer Society Halton office is currently seeking community minded, outgoing and personable leads for the 2018 Relay For Life Committees in Burlington/Oakville and Milton. This unpaid volunteer role includes leading the engagement and outreach initiative focusing on recruiting corporate and community teams. With the assistance of a staff lead and volunteer working group, the leads will focus on connecting with schools, community centres, sports teams, businesses and their own personal network in Halton. It is an excellent way to get involved and support the work of the Canadian Cancer Society, and also have the opportunity to further develop your own professional network, enhance your communication, team leadership and organizational skills. We are also looking for leads for food, survivors and luminaries, mission and other areas. All leads are expected to promote the event and help with team recruitment.
The Burlington/Oakville event takes place at Bronte Creek Provincial Park, Oakville on Friday, June 1, 2018. The Milton event takes place at Country Heritage Park, Milton on Friday, June 8, 2018.
We are looking for exciting engagement ideas, an excellent background in team leadership, organization, public communications and a passion for supporting the work being done at the Canadian Cancer Society.
