Volunteer: *Runners/Walkers Needed For 6k Run/Walk- Race 4 Resources

*Contact Information: Trish at (248) 331.2800 About This Activity   *This link: goo.gl/RtWZm6 will take you directly to The Colors of Cancer Race 4 Resources registration page.

Cancer Awareness and Resource Network is hosting its inaugural “Colors of Cancer Race 4 Resources”.           This “Colors of Cancer Race 4 Resources” charity run/walk is designed to raise the necessary dollars to assist cancer fighters and their families across the State of Michigan while putting the spotlight on cancer of all types and their colors in a robust and inclusive way. We all know the work many do when it comes to cancer research in general and breast cancer specially, which is a great and noble work.  However, we also know if we only focus in on one cancer segment, we unfortunately leave out so many great people who have contributed to our lives and who have also battled cancer, people like: Peter Jennings, Walt Disney and Paul Newman battled (lung cancer, the color is white), Bob Marley (melanoma, the color is black), Eartha Kitt (colon, the color is royal blue), Farrah Fawcett (anal, the color is purple), Ed Bradley (leukemia, the color is orange), Patrick Swayze (pancreatic, the color is purple), John Kerry (prostate, the color is powder blue) not to mention our own family and friends. Research show there are so many families that become destitute when cancer strikes their homes for if no other reason, the high cost of care, whether its chemotherapy, radiation, the cost of medicine or the loss of a job. This Colors of Cancer Race 4 Resources is designed to help bridge the gap.                                                     When you register for the Colors of Cancer Race 4 Resources, you will support cancer fighters of all types. ~Our MOTTO: Cancer doesn’t discriminate…so we won’t either~                     Event details and schedule *This link: goo.gl/RtWZm6 will take you directly to The Colors of Cancer Race 4 Resources registration page.

Volunteer: Strategic Planning Facilitator

We are a small organization looking to expand. We have a fairly clear idea of where we would like to be in the next several years, however we need some help in putting together a plan for how to get there. We are looking for someone with experience with the strategic planning process who would be willing to lead us (members, staff, and advisory board) through it over the next few months. 

We are a locally located branch of a larger, but still small, NPO but we operate somewhat independently. We want to expand our services in Washtenaw County and need your help to get there!

Do you have experience facilitating a strategic planning process? Please get in contact!
