Relay for Life seeks volunteers

Kitimat’s 13th annual Relay For Life will be held on Saturday, May 5.

Kitimat’s 13th annual Relay For Life will be held on Saturday, May 5.

We are so blessed to live in a community that is so generous in its support of this event.

Funds raised at Relay For Life enable the Canadian Cancer Society to invest in world class research, continue with our focus on prevention programs and education, and continue providing support to communities across BC.

These programs make an enormous difference in the lives of those affected by cancer.

As you know, behind every successful event there is a dedicated group of volunteers, and for that I am truly thankful.

As with all volunteer groups we are undergoing some changes and are in need of more people to help.

This is your opportunity to be part of a local event that changes lives and brings a community together to fight cancer!

Some of the areas in need of assistance are:

Leadership co-chairman: to work with myself to help oversee the event.

Team Development co-chairmen: due to the relocation of the current chairman we are in need of volunteers to  assist in recruitment and support of teams.

Sponsorship committee: a few people to look after soliciting support from local businesses (cash or in kind) and secure donations to be used as prizes.

Survivor and Caregiver co-chairman:  to work with Renate Cole to recruit and plan our Survivor and Caregiver celebration at Relay.

If you are willing to help on the committee, need more information, or know someone who might be interested, please contact Margaret Ferns, leadership co-chairman, at 250-632-2862 or kitimatrelay@bc.cancer.ca
