American Cancer Society-Relay For Life

The Problem

Every year the American Cancer Society hosts Relay For Life, a team event to fight cancer. I volunteer with this in Pulaski County, KY. I am the Fundraising Chairperson, and one of the youngest committee members organizing this event.

Plan of Action

As the Fundraising Chair, I must encourage teams (roughly 70 teams) to push the bar with fundraising. I help to organize events, and help with promotion of events. I am also creating a cookbook that our teams can sell to raise money. I team up with business to do charity nights (such as restaurants donating 10% of sales) and arrange for donation canisters to be left at participating businesses. Together, we can make a difference and end this disease.
