There is a wonderful opportunity to create a meaningful event in your community that celebrates those who have lived, are living, and moving past cancer. The Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life event brings neighbors, friends, and community influencers together, united by the common goal of creating a world where no Canadian fears cancer. The experience of cheering on survivors, walking the track, and joining in a range of track-side activities at Relay For Life (RFL) creates an unforgettable evening!
Volunteer Recruitment and Retention Lead
As the Volunteer Recruitment and Retention Lead, you are organized, self-motivated, and have great interpersonal skills. Using your personal and professional networks, you will assist in promotion and recruitment for the Relay For Life event by collaborating with your Canadian Cancer Society staff partner and the Relay For Life Event Chair. This role involves prospecting, developing, and establishing new relationships and leads, as well as educating them about this opportunity. You will also be provided contact information for participants from the previous year’s event; you will become their point of contact for engaging in 2020!
The committee will meet regularly over the year, with increasing commitments as the event approaches. Event day in Peterborough is Saturday May 30, 2020. Each committee member will have their own portfolio but will share a passion for the mission: to provide the opportunity for those affected by cancer to come together and draw support while raising funds for critical, life-saving cancer research and programs.
This volunteer lead is responsible for recruiting new people to participate in the event as well as re-engaging past participants to return to Relay in 2020. Strong connections within Peterborough and District, as well as knowledge of the local community is a must. The successful candidate will have sales and/or fundraising experience, be familiar with event promotion, and be able to motivate others to success.
