Volunteer at Relay for Life!
Event on 2017-07-21 18:00:00
Come join us for a volunteer project at Relay for Life! Greenheart staff member, Rob DeLaney will be there. He would love to meet you, volunteer with you, and learn about your experiences in the US. You will be helping to ensure the Relay for Life runs smoothly and volunteering wherever extra support is needed! Here are some more details about what will happen at the Relay: Relay starts with a Survivors Lap – an inspirational time when survivors are invited to circle the track together and help everyone celebrate the victories we’ve achieved over cancer. We also recognize and celebrate caregivers at Relay For Life. These individuals give their time, love, and support to friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers who face cancer.Luminaria CeremonyAfter dark, we honor people who have been touched by cancer and remember loved ones lost to the disease during the Luminaria Ceremony. Candles are lit inside bags filled with sand, each one bearing the name of a person touched by cancer, and participants often walk a lap in silence.Fight Back CeremonyLast, there is a Fight Back Ceremony, where we make a personal commitment to save lives by taking up the fight against cancer. That personal commitment may be to do something as simple as getting a screening test, quitting smoking, or talking to elected officials about cancer. By taking action, people are personally taking steps to save lives and fight back against a disease that takes too much.
