Relay for Life seeking volunteers

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is seeking volunteers in Cass County to organize and recruit fundraising teams, garner community support, coordinate logistics, seek refreshments and prizes, plan entertainment and lend a hand to ensure the success of the 2014 event.

The 24-hour relay event aims to bring communities together to finish the fight against cancer. Volunteer support is needed in order for the event to operate.

The next volunteer committee meeting will be 6 p.m. Thursday, May 1, at Logansport Memorial Hospital, conference room A/B. The meeting will continue the planning process for the community’s Relay For Life event, which supports the mission of the American Cancer Society to save lives by helping people stay well, by helping people get well, by finding cures and by fighting back against the disease.

Relay For Life events are held overnight as individuals and teams camp out at an athletic track, park or fairground, with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track or pathway at all times. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their camp sites at the event. Relay For Life brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools, faith-based groups and 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.

To join the Relay For Life of Cass County as a volunteer or team participant, call the American Cancer Society at 317-344-7800, or visit RelayForLife.org or www.cancer.org.
