Cambrian Fights Cancer! - American Cancer Society Relay For Life
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!
ACCOUNTING LEAD LEAD ROLE:
The accounting lead ensures there is an accurate record of how much money is raised to fuel the mission of the American Cancer Society. Individuals in this role work behind the scenes to make sure all of the data is in order. They are comfortable doing timely online data entry, serving in a customer service role when it comes to accounting, handling money, and ensuring all policies and procedures are adhered to.
SPECIFIC TASKS CAN INCLUDE:
- Collect and process cash and checks at Relay For Life event and other designated dates/venues. * Manage online donation adjustments/questions as needed.
- Manage data capture for offline donations.
- Assist registration lead in advising teams and participants on donation collecting process and procedures.
- Work in close collaboration with the Relay For Life specialist, event lead, and fund the cure lead to ensure correct training and steps are being followed.

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.
