Relay For Life comes back to Port McNeill

After two years away, the North Island Relay For Life is returning to Port McNeill for 2014.

Dear editor,

The Canadian Cancer Society is excited to announce that after two years away, the North Island Relay For Life is returning to Port McNeill for 2014.

Relay For Life is an inspirational, non-competitive, 12-hour overnight fundraising event that brings the community together to celebrate life and fight cancer. The event symbolizes and honours a cancer patient’s journey.

At Relay For Life, each step we take is our way of showing them that they are not alone. As the sun rises and Relay draws to a close, we commit to continuing the fight for life.

We are recruiting a committee of volunteers to share ideas and get creative with this year’s event. We focus on developing flexible volunteer opportunities which meet the needs of our volunteers. Whatever the skills you are hoping to share or further develop are, we can work with you to create a role on the committee that fits your goals.

The time commitment is flexible and there are a wide variety of ways to get involved in areas of the event such as entertainment, activities, and team recruitment.

We also offer an optional, free Workforce Leadership Program, a training program open to all volunteers and staff, with modules on Collaboration, Conflict Resolution and more.

We are starting from scratch on the event this year, and without the support of volunteers and the broader community, this event would not happen!

If you are interested in volunteering your time and talent to the fight against cancer, please call or email the Volunteer Engagement Coordinator, Anna Glenny, at 1-800-663-7892 ext. 226 or virvolunteerengage@bc.cancer.ca.

You can also register to volunteer, or register a team to participate in the event, at relay.cancer.ca, by using the community locator to find your event. We look forward to hearing from you!
