Relay For Life needs volunteers

Support The American Cancer Society Relay For Life® of Chittenden County by becoming a volunteer. A volunteer committee meeting will be held on June 1 at 9 am at the ACS office 55 Day Lane, Williston for volunteers to receive details for the Relay For Life event, which supports the American Cancer Society’s mission of saving 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 other gathering area, with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track or pathway 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, civic and 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.

Volunteers can help by hanging posters, as well as lending time throughout the event. Those willing to give their time and energy to this exciting event are making a commitment to let the local community know that cancer can be defeated. If you would like to join the Relay For Life of Chittenden County as a volunteer or team participant, call Amy Deavitt at (802) 872-6316 or via email Amy.Deavitt@cancer.org.
