1 TEAM CAPTAIN S HANDBOOK Stanford Relay For Life 2003 Colleges Against Cancer, Stanford University Chapter

2 It s about a community that takes up the fight

3 WHAT IS RELAY FOR LIFE? Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society s National Signature Event. It began in 1985 in Tacoma, Washington, when Dr. Gordon Klatt decided to walk for 24 hours to raise money for the American Cancer Society. He raised $27,000 that first year, and the Relay For Life was born. To participate in Relay For Life, you recruit a team of friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, etc. Each participant raises money prior to the event. Then, come event day, each team member takes turns walking around the track for 18 hours. The goal is to have someone on the track at all times. The actual Relay For Life event is full of fun, fellowship, and festivities. People camp-out and a community party atmosphere is created. Relay For Life is a great team builder for companies, churches, and the like. Each Relay For Life starts with the inspiring Survivor s Lap. Cancer survivors from throughout the community are invited to walk in this celebration of life, while the rest of the participants cheer them on. It s a great testimony to the fact that people do survive cancer! The most emotional part of Relay is the Luminaria Ceremony. This is a chance to honor cancer survivors, and remember those who have passed on. In the evening, white bags line the track. Each is filled with sand and a candle, and dedicated to a person touched by cancer. The candles are lit during a special ceremony. The candles burn throughout the night, lighting the way for the walkers. FACTS ABOUT RELAY FOR LIFE Nationwide, in 2001, Relay For Life happened in nearly 3,000 communities across the country and raised more than $211 million nationwide In 2001, the California Division had 118 Relay For Life events and raised $11.7 million for the fight against cancer. Relay For Life accounts for 25% of the American Cancer Society s annual income. Relay For Life is the largest nonprofit fundraising event in the WORLD. In the United States, 1.5 million people will participate in Relay For Life; and 400,000 cancer survivors will walk in the Survivor s Lap. It also takes place in 7 other countries around the world!

4 WHAT IS THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY? The American Cancer Society has had the same mission since it was founded in 1913 to eliminate cancer. By the year 2015, we aim to double the number of lives saved, reduce cancer incidence by 25%, and make measurable improvements on the quality of life for cancer patients and their families. Funds raised through Relay For Life supports the American Cancer Society s programs and services. These include: Research. Last year, we invested $100 million in peer reviewed cancer research. We ve funded 31 researchers who later went on to be awarded the Nobel Prize. Education. We provide materials and educational programs on early detection and prevention of cancer to the community, our schools, and cancer patients. Service. We provide support for patients and their families. We also provide information through our 24-hour call center ACS-2345 and at our website FACTS ABOUT THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY 1 out of 2 men and 1 out of 3 women will get cancer in their lifetime. Nationwide... 1,221,800 people will be diagnosed with cancer this year. There are approximately 8,200,000 cancer survivors living in the United States! The California Division of the American Cancer Society funds its own research program for more than $1 million. The National Office allocates another $9.7 million to be spent on cancer research in California. Since 1946, the American Cancer Society has invested over $2 billion in cancer research. The American Cancer Society receives the highest ratings from philanthropic watchdog groups. Many known methods for detecting cancer (ultrasound, MRI s, CAT scans, mammograms) were discovered by researchers who received American Cancer Society research grants.

5 STEPS TO SUCCESS You are a hero! You are making a difference in the fight against cancer! TEAM CAPTAIN S CHECKLIST Get the word out! Talk to everyone you know -- in your company, church, clubs, schools, neighborhood, and family. This is how you ll form your team. Have a Team Meeting, establish a team name and theme. Give purpose to your team dedicate your efforts to someone who has been touched by cancer. Fill out and turn in the Team Registration Form with complete information on your teammates as soon as possible. Turn in your Team Registration Fee. This can be paid by team members; or you can get a company to sponsor you. Ask your dentist, doctor, insurance agent, attorney... get creative! Read the Team Captain Handbook. Have your team members set a goal for how much money they can raise. Remember... to get a t-shirt each team member must raise at least $100. Follow-up to see how they are doing. Give them tips and encouragement! Hand out Team Member Packets, donation envelopes, and waivers to each teammate. Be sure to get them started early! Attend Team Captain Meetings. Communicate with your team. Let them know what to expect when they come to Relay For Life. Encourage them to stay the entire 24 hours; to camp out! Turn in money for your team at Bank Night. Be a leader and help your team reach its fundraising goal. Challenge other teams. Utilize the American Cancer Society if you need help with ideas. We re here to assist you! Remind your team members that the American Cancer Society provides free programs and services in your community.

6 How to Recruit a Terrific Team! GET EXCITED! Enthusiasm is contagious. RELAY IS FOR EVERYONE! You don t have to be athletic do participate in Relay For Life. People will be walking, running, strolling, dancing, and wheeling around the track. ANYONE can be part of this great community event. Arrange an EMPLOYEE PRESENTATION. Lunch is a great time (since everyone likes to eat!); or at an all-employee meeting. Tell your co-workers what Relay For Life is all about. Try to set up a challenge between departments or other locations. Ask your company to sponsor you (pay registration fee). If you d like a speaker from ACS, just give us a call. RECRUIT YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS. Expand your team roster by including spouses and other family members. It s a family affair! Other potential walkers can be found at your place of worship, doctor s office, neighborhood, etc. DEDICATE YOUR TEAM to a cancer survivor. If you know someone who is dealing with cancer... why not pay tribute by dedicating your team to them? Also, invite cancer survivors to participate! Create a TEAM THEME! Get creative. Come up with a unique name, plan to decorate your tent city with props that match your theme. GET THE WORD OUT! Put up Relay For Life posters and display the event brochure. Become your organization s personal Relay For Life cheerleader! Show the RELAY VIDEO to everyone on your team. It will connect them with why Relay For Life is important, and how much fun the event will be. Have your team SET A GOAL for fundraising. Have each participant set a personal goal, and then set a team goal. Encourage team members to meet their goal by constant communication with them. Let the good of who you are reflect off of everyone you meet. Let the positive attitude and hope of your dreams illuminate the darkness and ease the burden of someone else.

The name and phone number of your chaperone must be submitted to the American Cancer Society office three weeks prior to the event, along with your Chaperone Commitment Form.

8 Youth Team Chaperone Commitment Form As a Youth Team Chaperone, you are an integral part of Relay For Life. We at the American Cancer Society are grateful for your presence and for your act of taking up the fight against cancer. As a chaperone, there are a few things that we ask of you. Although for the most part they are common sense, please read the following before signing on as a Chaperone. Again, thank you for your dedication to the youth of our community and to the American Cancer Society. We value their energy, enthusiasm and involvement. Requirements for Youth Team Chaperones: 1. Enforce the Youth Requirements and General Rules of Relay For Life. 2. Be a role model by abiding by the rules including no smoking or alcohol consumption at the event. 3.
