I have been involved with the Relay for Life/ACS since 2003, a 24 hour walkathon which is the single most successful fundraising event for the American Cancer Society. Though I initially started with participating in the event and fundraising, throughout the last few years my responsiblity has been transformed. I had the opportunity to be a keynote speaker at the event. I also started a new team last year. I was also on the planning committee for two different parts of the event. Additonally, I had parlor meetings at my house for letter writing campaign to raise money. I had bake sales at school and set up a booth at a local shopping center to sell luminary bags.
