Looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity?

Quesnel Canadian Cancer Society office is looking for people to help with Relay for Life 2015

A small, dedicated group of volunteers is starting to plan for the Quesnel Relay For Life 2015 and is looking for leadership volunteers to join the committee. If you have a passion you’d love to share, the team needs you. This can be anything from creating a Facebook page, writing articles, making posters, talking to business owners, brainstorming ideas – the list is endless.

The Canadian Cancer Society is helping Quesnel citizens through: the service (wigs/prosthetics, etc.) of the local community office in the Fireside building in South Quesnel; the financial support for which 65 separate applications have been fulfilled in the last four years; the 103 Quesnel residents that have stayed in Kordyban Lodge this year; and our Cancer information line that offers valuable information to anyone that calls (1-888-939-3333).

There are so many opportunities to take, so many people who need a helping hand. We can make someone’s fight a little easier.

We have the power within all of us. There is always someone who needs you.

It could be big, and it could be small. Take privilege in offering a helping hand. Remember, we live in this world together. So what’s holding you back? Volunteer today.

The next Relay For Life meeting will be Tuesday, Nov. 18 at 6:30 p.m. at the Quesnel community office. The office is located off Highway 97, across from Tim Hortons, in the fireside building.

If you’d like to volunteer, please drop by the office or call Pam at 250-983-7514 or Ray at 250-255-0096.

Quesnel Relay For Life will take place Saturday, May 30 from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. and the theme is “Colors for Cancer.” You can register online now on the Relay For Life Quesnel 2015 page www.relayforlife.ca/quesnel. Any questions or feedback, call the Quesnel community office at 778-466-3332.
