It's time to sign up your team, choose your theme and start raising the money that will fund the mission!
As in the years past, teams will get to choose their team's theme in the order that they sign up online. But as an added incentive to get ALL our 2015 teams signed up by kick-off we will be having a raffle. All teams signed up by Mon Sept 21st and have a minimum $10 donation for the team will be put in a drawing for first choice of their theme. After that, we will go back to the order that teams have signed up. So even if you signed up 10th, as long as you signed up by Mon Sept 21st and have $10 raised, you will still have a chance to get first choice of your team's theme.
I want you to know how excited your event leadership team (aka committee) is to get started with helping you have the best Relay ever! They are working on so many new ideas so you won't want to miss it! We are going to have a new structure for the team meetings. Meetings will be filled tons of information about how to be a successful team, how what we do is making a difference, new challenges and lots of fun! But just like the Relay itself, we need you there to make it work. We are hoping that all teams will have at least one or two teammates at all meetings.
We still are looking for more relayers to join our leadership team, specifically team ambassadors. Please let our People Lead Mallory Kearney (firstname.lastname@example.org) know and she can talk to you about this. Our next leadership meeting will be on Tues Sept 8th at the Student Leadership Academy at 6pm (MAP). If you think you might be interested in joining please come out, all are welcome.
Remember when you come to the kick-off have at least 2 theme choices just in case. Our event theme is "HOPE...Turning the Page on Cancer"
Teams will choose a book/story and decorate their campsite accordingly. Let's really use our imaginations and have fun with it!!
And speaking of themes, the 2016 Relay For Life wide theme is "Paint Your World Purple". We are going to really try to make this happen in Venice so be thinking of new ways we can get the city and it's residents on board! Our success depends on you and our community working together! I look forward to seeing all of you at kick-off on Tuesday Sept 22nd @ 6pm in the Venice Regional Bayfront Health Hospital's auditorium. (MAP)
