The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life of Menlo Park is holding a kick off event at The Dutch Goose (Alameda and Avy) on April 5 at 6:30 pm. Emailed spokesperson Allison Langston: “The Kick Off is to thank existing teams and past participants and to provide information about this year’s event to interested and new volunteers who want to join the planning committee or form a team. It should be a lot of fun!”
This year’s Relay for Life is scheduled for August 4-5 at Burgess Park in Menlo Park. Volunteers are needed to help with event leadership, cancer survivor celebration and recruitment, team recruitment, food, marketing, cancer education, accounting, and ceremony planning. Additional planning meetings will be held on April 17, May 15, June 19, and July 17 at the Menlo Park Chamber of Commerce (1100 Merrill Street).
