Featured Volunteer Needs – February 2017

Party in the Park - hands

Rein in Sarcoma totally relies on great volunteers (you!) for our success. Here are some current volunteer opportunities for which we have a special need.

Volunteer Expo – Feb 18

The Volunteer Expo is February 18 at Mall of America. We are expecting a huge turnout that day as EA Sports in partnership with the Minnesota Vikings will have a special live tournament of Madden 17 at Mall. The event will bring in hundreds, if not thousands of people, thus an opportunity to expose the RISF to a huge crowd. The Minnesota Vikings will be supporting the Volunteer Expo by announcing the Expo from the Rotunda encouraging people to stop by the first floor courts. We need 1-2 volunteers to staff our table from 11:30 -1:15 or 1:15-3:00 (this shift requires tearing down and bringing the materials home with you). Contact Nancy Hendrickson via [email address=”nhendrickson@reininsarcoma.org” link_text=”email”] or at 651-487-3031 if you would like to help.

Party in the Park

We have one remaining leadership position to fill for Party in the Park (PIP) which takes place on July 24, 2017. Leaders will be responsible for pre-event planning and organization and should be present for all three PIP meetings (March, April, June) and the event. See a summary of last year’s event.

Sarcoma Garden of Hope Chair – We need a leader to bring fresh ideas and greater impact to this area. This person should secure a craft or activity for this area, take pictures on attendees’ cell phones of their group in front of the sunflower display, interact with attendees as they visit the garden, etc.

For more information about any PIP volunteer positions contact Chelsey Olafson via  [email address=”eventchair@reininsarcoma.org” link_text=”email.”]
