Volunteers Needed for UW-Green Bay Relay for Life event

UWGBThe American Cancer Society, Colleges Against Cancer is seeking volunteers in the Green Bay area to be a part of the annual University of Wisconsin, Green Bay Relay For Life event scheduled for April 22nd, 2016.

Each team has at least one participant on the track at all times and participates in raising funds to support the American Cancer Society’s mission to finish the fight against cancer. Four million people participated in more than 6,000 events worldwide last year.
