American Cancer Society Seeks Volunteers for Local Relay For Life Event
As you consider how you can make a difference in the coming year, consider joining the fight against cancer by volunteering for Relay For Life, an event that benefits the American Cancer Society’s mission to eliminate cancer. Volunteer positions are still available, and more information about these volunteer opportunities will be provided at the next Relay For Life planning meeting on February 2nd, 2012 at 5:30 p.m. at the AmeriState Conference Room in Antlers.
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a fun-filled, overnight event that mobilizes communities across the country to celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost to the disease, and raise money for the fight to find a cure. Survivors and cancer patients, caregivers, their families, businesses, civic organizations and the public are invited to form teams to take part in this exciting team event. Teams raise funds prior to the Relay, all with the goal of supporting a cure for cancer.
Volunteers are needed to organize and recruit Relay For Life teams, seek community support for the event, recruit cancer survivors and caregivers to participate in the event, coordinate logistics, find refreshments and prizes, plan entertainment and lend their support in many other ways, as well.
It is never too late for you to join the fight against cancer. For more information or to get involved with the 2012 Relay For Life of Pushmataha County, please attend the meeting on February 2nd or talk to a local Relay For Life participant. For more information about cancer, call the American Cancer Society’s 24-hour help line at 1-800-227-2345 or visit cancer.org.
The American Cancer Society combines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save lives and end suffering from cancer. We save lives by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight.
