Multiple Opportunities for Support
If teams are the heart of a Relay, then Committees are its muscle. Committee volunteers pull it all together from Kick-off to Wrap Up. Led by chairs, some committee members focus on growing the event, like recruiting new teams, finding sponsors, survivors, and helping teams learn more about Relay For Life and the American Cancer Society.
Other committee members focus on event production, like event night activities, logistics, planning ceremonies, advertising the event, and much more.
Relay For Life currently has many opportunities for volunteers looking to get involved with events in Indianapolis and the surrounding areas for the 2014-2015 season.
About the American Cancer Society Relay For Life
The American Cancer Society is passionately committed to saving lives from cancer. We are working to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays- a world where cancer never steals another year from anyone’s life.The ACS saves lives by helping people stay well, helping people get well, by finding cures, and fighting back.
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.
Relay For Life teams camp out overnight and take turns walking or running around a track or path at a local high school, park, or fairground. Events are up to 24 hours long, and because cancer never sleeps, each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times.
