The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is looking for committee members to be a part of the 2014 Relay For Life Of Crawford County.

The first volunteer committee meeting will be held on Thursday, Sept. 19 at 5:30 p.m. in the basement of St. John’s UCC 120 S. Lane St. in Bucyrus.

Volunteers are needed to organize and recruit teams, seek community support and underwriting, coordinate the survivor dinner, coordinate logistics, find refreshments and prizes, plan entertainment and much more! Relay For Life is held overnight as individuals and teams camp out at an athletic track, with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track at all times throughout the evening.

Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their camp sites during Relay.

Relay brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools, faith-based groups . . . people from all walks of life – all aimed at celebrating the lives of those who have had cancer, remembering those lost, and fighting back against the disease.

Anyone that is interested in seeing how they can be part of this wonderful event is more than welcome to join current committee members. This commits you to nothing but you can see if something strikes their interest.

If you would like more information on the Relay For Life in Crawford County or have questions about becoming a committee member, volunteer or team participant, call the American Cancer Society at (888) 227-6446 ext 5204 or visit www.RelayForLife.org.
