Relay For Life of Greater Bridgewater Committee Looking for Volunteers


Bridgewater, MA – January 10 – The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Greater Bridgewater is looking for interested individuals to volunteer their talents on this year’s committee. The next meeting will be on December 10th at 6:15pm, in St. Basil’s Catholic Center on the Bridgewater State College University campus.

Relay For Life is the signature event of the American Cancer Society. It is a fun-filled, overnight event that mobilizes communities throughout the country to celebrate survivors (anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer), remember loved ones, commit to fight back through healthy lifestyle changes, and raise money for the fight against cancer. This year the Relay For Life of Greater Bridgewater will have an Olympic theme!

Teams gather with tents and sleeping bags to participate in the largest grassroots fundraising event in the nation. Relay For Life brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools and communities. Teams seek sponsorship prior to the Relay, all with the goal of eliminating cancer.

Volunteers are needed to organize and recruit teams, seek community support, coordinate logistics, find refreshments and prizes, plan entertainment, and lend their support in any way.
