Volunteers Needed

Volunteers Needed for American Cancer Society Relay For Life Pomona, April 18th-19th, 2009 - Walkers, cancer survivors, community leaders, team captains and hard workers are all needed to make the American Cancer Society Relay For Life a reality in Pomona. Relay For Life is a unique fundraising event that allows participants from all walks of life – including patients, medical support staff, corporations, civic organizations, churches and community volunteers – celebrate the lives of those who have faced cancer, remember loved ones lost and fight back against the disease.

Relay For Life is a team event where participants walk around a track relay-style overnight. Teams of cancer fighting enthusiasts will gather at Pomona City Quad, April 18th at 9:00am to show their support and dedication. Volunteers from the local community 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 fund raiser," said Joan Orozco, Event Chair. "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; and underwrite, coordinate logistics, find refreshments and prizes, plan entertainment, and lend their support in any way. If you would like to join the Relay For Life in Pomona as a volunteer or team participant, call the American Cancer Society at (626)966-9994, or visit .

The American Cancer Society is dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by saving lives, diminishing suffering and preventing cancer through research, education, advocacy and service. Founded in 1913 and with national headquarters in Atlanta, the Society has 13 regional Divisions and local offices in 3,400 communities, involving millions of volunteers across the United States.
