Relay for Life postponed to October

Angela Lee, ACS Community Development Manager

Relay For Life in Medina County has been postponed for October of 2018 and will take place in Hondo, Texas this year, according to the rotation theory.
This year for 2018, Medina County RFL will have a new ACS Community Development Manager and her name is Angela Lee. “I was able to visit with Angela by telephone the other day and she sounds exactly like what we have been needing here in Medina County. She is experienced in the various aspects of the American Cancer Society and is enthusiastic about her new position and the opportunity to work with our Medina County Relay For Life. Angela needs our help though as she is rebuilding the local leadership structure as many have retired and moved on. She is looking for people who have the passion for volunteering and leading the various roles in the Relay For Life including a Chairman or Co-Chairmen to lead. Other positions volunteers are needed for are Accounting, Logistics, Luminaria, Survivor Chair, Publicity, Entertainment, Food etc.”, said Kathleen Calame, Publicity Volunteer, Medina County Relay For Life.
Angela Lee is based in the San Antonio area. She was diagnosed in 1984 at age of 13 with Hodgkin’s lymphoma and celebrates being 34 years cancer free this year! Her tenure as a survivor has led her to many volunteer roles to include being a cancer legislative advocate and ACS Relay volunteer for many years prior to starting her employment this past February. As a Community Development Manager, she is now a staff partner to many Relay events in the San Antonio community, as well as ours in Medina County, Texas.
Angela would like to get together soon with anyone who is interested in helping with this year’s Relay which is tentatively set for October 2018 in Hondo, Texas. She will be sending out an email soon to those who call or express an interest in being on the leadership team to set up an initial meeting to visit with those interested and get things rolling. “We are definitely looking for an Event Chair and Co-Chairs” and are hoping to find someone soon. So anyone who has some suggestions or interests in these roles, please call or email me,” said Ms. Lee, ACS Community Development Manger, South Region. She can be reached at Angela Lee, American Cancer Society, Inc., 8115 Datapoint Dr., San Antonio, TX 78229. Her phone is cell 210-383-6873 or office 210-595-0244.
