Volunteers needed for American Cancer Society Relay For Life

Daily News staff report

Walkers, cancer survivors (anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer), community leaders, team captains and hard workers are all needed to make the American Cancer Society Relay For Life a reality in Summit County.

The planning process to raise funds and awareness of the fight against cancer in Summit County has already begun.

Relay For Life is a fundraising event that allows participants from all walks of life to join together in the fight against cancer.

Relay For Life is a team event where participants walk around a track relay style overnight. Teams of cancer fighting enthusiasts will gather at the Summit High School Track on Aug. 20-21 at 7 p.m.-7 a.m. to show their support and dedication.

Volunteers from the Summit County area are needed to begin planning now for this event.

“Relay For Life is as much an awareness raiser about the progress against cancer as it is a fundraiser,” said Alison Kellermann, co-chairperson of the event. “Individuals who are willing to give their time and energy to this exciting event, as a volunteer or participant, have made a commitment to fight back against this disease and let the community know that you can beat cancer.”

Volunteers are needed to organize and recruit teams, seek community support, underwrite and coordinate logistics, find refreshments and prizes, plan entertainment and lend their support in any way.

Call Casey Kellermann at (970) 389-4650 or Alison Kellermann at (970) 389-4453.
