Camaraderie through the year(s)!
Together, Rein in Sarcoma volunteers plan and carry out events in each season of the year starting with the Winter Gathering, followed by Patient and Family Picnic, Party in the Park; Charity Golf Challenge, Community Bike Fundraiser, Concert, Fall Fundraiser; and Rein in Sarcoma Remembers. Each volunteer shares his or her time to make invitations, decorations, food, finances, logistics, marketing, and program fit together cohesively for a pleasing and productive experience. Volunteers support patients with notebooks, tote bags, and peer mentoring. Volunteers support education and research by writing brochures to hand out at various public events, staffing education tables, providing training for medical professionals about sarcoma, and fundraising. Volunteers create marketing materials and raise sarcoma awareness through social media.
This year, we thanked and celebrated Rein in Sarcoma volunteers at a new venue - Central Park in Roseville. Our volunteers demonstrated their care and flexibility throughout the year helping advance our mission to educate, support, and fund research. There are so many different ways to support RIS, that volunteers often do not know each other. The volunteer appreciation picnic is one way to get to know other volunteers and other aspects of RIS. Sitting around picnic tables chatting and enjoying a cool breeze, volunteers played an ice-breaker game and partook of summer foods.
Rein in Sarcoma is funding critical research projects each year, and reaching more patients and families and medical professionals because our volunteers are getting it done. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
