Volunteer committee meeting set for Relay for Life

By Staff and Press reports

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is seeking volunteers in Choctaw County – walkers, cancer survivors, caregivers, community leaders, anyone wanting to make a difference – to organize and recruit fundraising teams, garner community support, coordinate logistics, seek refreshments and prizes, plan entertainment and lend a hand to ensure the success of the 2013 event.

The first volunteer committee meeting will be held this Thursday, January 24 at 6 p.m. at Ackerman Church of Christ at 460 Seward Street, Ackerman. The meeting will begin the planning process for the community’s Relay For Life event, 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.

If you would like to join the Relay For Life of Choctaw County as a volunteer or team participant and cannot attend the meeting, call the American Cancer Society at 662.285.7860, or visit RelayForLife.org.
