(Clinton Township, MI ) – The American Cancer Society is seeking volunteers in Clinton Township and Fraser area to recruit fundraising teams, garner community support, coordinate logistics, plan entertainment and lend a hand to ensure the success of the 2013 Relay For Life event. Cancer survivors, caregivers, community leaders and anyone wanting to make a difference is invited to participate.
Our next Committee Meeting is Thursday, December 6 at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will take place in Room 205 at the Macomb Intermediate School District located at 44001 Garfield Road. For more information on this and upcoming meetings please call 248.663.3444.
Relay For Life is a fun event that brings together families, friends, businesses, hospitals, schools and faith-based groups to celebrate the lives of those who have had cancer, remember those who lost their battle, and fight back against the disease.
“Relay For Life is the community’s chance to unite in the fight against cancer and support the American Cancer Society’s efforts to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays,” said Nancy Smith, Event Chair. “Volunteers and participants who are willing to give their time and energy to this exciting event are making a commitment to let our community know that cancer can be defeated.”
The event is held overnight as individuals and teams camp out at a local school track with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track at all times throughout the evening, signifying that cancer never sleeps. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their campsites during Relay.
If you would like to join the Relay For Life of Clinton Township as a volunteer or team participant, call the American Cancer Society at 248.663.3444, or visit RelayForLife.org/clintontownshipmi.
