North Region Community Fundraising Volunteer Leadership Team

Hello Relay Event Chairs,

We would like to take a minute and introduce you to the members of our North Region Community Fundraising Leadership team. These volunteers are all here to help support you and guide strategy for all things community fundraising in the North Region of the American Cancer Society. That includes, Relay, Strides, Endurance properties etc. We also have volunteers on the team that focus specifically on mission, training and recognition.

The North Region team is led by three leads, Roxie Smith (Oregon), Lisa Wilfong (Missouri) and Shelle Arnold (Kansas), all of which have an extensive and successful volunteer history with ACS which started with Relay For Life.  Also on our leadership team is our North Region Relay Lead, Becky VanLoon (Iowa).  Becky brings with her 20 years of Relay For Life and ACS volunteer leadership experience.

As part of our model we have also have a group of amazing volunteers in the role as Relay Stars. These individuals are here to mentor and offer support to Relay event leads just like you, who would like to brainstorm, talk through barriers and connect on all things Relay. If you are interested in getting that special layer of support for a star we invite you to fill out this application for support.

We want you to know that we are here to help you, to support you and to cheer you on, in whatever way you may need. We will be sending text messages a couple of times per month, we invite you to respond and interact with us so we can be sure you have everything you need.  We look forward to helping and supporting you however we can.

Here is contact information for each of us:
