With the Relay for Life of Starke County still in the planning phase, the organization is looking for volunteers interested in helping plan this year’s event. Ericka Taylor-Joseph said there are several positions open ranging from those with minimal time commitments to others with more.

Taylor-Joseph said Relay is looking for volunteers to help with Silent Auction, Survivors, Entertainment and Activities, Mission and Advocacy, Fundraising, Team Retention, Publicity and Youth Engagement. She said they are also looking for committees for the silent auctions and for help with survivor activities and entertainment for the Relay for Life event.

Anyone interested in lending a hand to Relay for Life of Starke County is encouraged to join the committee by contacting Taylor-Joseph at (574) 252-9489 or by attending the next team captain’s meeting at IU Health Starke Business Office, 11 S. Main St. in Knox on Thursday, March 13 at 6 p.m.

All proceeds from the Relay for Life event go to the American Cancer Society to help fight back against this terrible disease that has taken so many in our community. Please consider volunteering to help make this year’s Relay for Life event a huge success!
