The planning for the Los Alamos County American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life 2017 is moving ahead, with another meeting planned for 6 p.m. Tuesday in the small conference room of the Los Alamos Medical Center.
The hope of the next meeting is to attract volunteers as team captains, and to have people attend who are cancer survivors and anyone interested in getting involved with this year’s Relay for Life.
Many aspects go into planning Relay for Life, and to make it a successful event, the group needs the community’s  help, according to organizers.
The following positions need to be filled this year:
• Recruitment point of contact
• Sponsorship point of contact
• Entertainment point of contact
• Fundraising point of contact
• Survivor dinner point of contact
• Logistics point of contact
The organization’s goal is to raise $25,000 for cancer research for the American Cancer Society. This goal can be achieved by fundraising on-site during the event, off site prior to the event (bake-sale, car wash, silent auction, etc.), luminaria sales and donations from private parties and businesses.
This year, the group has a goal of 15 teams to participate in the event to help achieve that goal. For information on this year’s Relay for Life, visit relay.acsevents.org, or contact Rachal Allen or Tonya Sprouse-Mullins at relayforlifelosalamos2017@gmail.com.
