Volunteers needed to plan, stage Southeast Relay For Life

Posted

Volunteers are needed to help plan and stage the Southeast Communities Relay For Life, an event of the American Cancer Society that raises nearly $400 million each year to support the fight against cancer.

The Southeast Communities relay takes place at O’Brien Park in downtown Parker, and includes the communities of Aurora, Castle Rock, Centennial, Elizabeth, Foxfield and Parker. In its 16th year, the 2018 event is planned for Sept. 29.

Relay For Life events are community gatherings in which participants celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost and enjoy activities and games. Individuals and teams take turns walking laps around a track at a school, park or fairground.

Teams participate in fundraising in the months leading up to the event, and money raised benefits cancer research and local patient services. In 2017, the Southeast Communities relay raised $65,000.

To sign up as a planning committee volunteer for the Southeast Communities Relay For Life, contact Lindsay Phelan, relay community manager, at 720-524-5453 or LindsayPhelan@cancer.org.
