Relay for Life volunteers sought

American Cancer Society officials are seeking volunteers to recruit fundraising teams, garner community support, coordinate logistics, plan entertainment and lend a hand to ensure the success of the 2014 Relay For Life of Ripley County. Cancer survivors, caregivers, community leaders and anyone wanting to make a difference are invited to participate, reports event chair Jeni Schnebelt.

The next volunteer committee meeting will be held on Monday, March 24, at 6 p.m. at the REMC Training Building, Osgood. The meeting will begin the planning process for the annual event in Ripley County, which supports the American Cancer Society’s mission of saving lives by helping people stay well, by helping people get well, by finding cures and by fighting back against the disease.

“One in every 100 Americans participates in this fundraising event that has become a global phenomenon,” said Schnebelt. “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. 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.”

Ripley County’s Relay for Life is Saturday-Sunday, June 21-22, from 8 a.m.-8 a.m. at the Batesville High School track.

For more information or to volunteer, persons can contact Schnebelt at 812-571-0297 or ripleycorfl@gmail.com.
