Agency:  The YMCA of the Greater Tri-Valley

Volunteer Project:  Rome Relay for Life

Summary:  On Friday May 31, 2013 youth volunteers from the YMCA of the Greater Tri-Valley Strategic Teen Enrichment Program (S.T.E.P.) prepared the New York State School for the Deaf for the Rome Relay for Life event. The youth volunteers set up rows of chairs, tables, tents, garbage cans, signs and banners. On Saturday June 1, 2013 youth volunteers walked in the Relay for Life. Volunteering for this event had particular meaning, because one of the youth volunteer’s mother has cancer. The Relay for Life Planning Committee was very grateful and their volunteer efforts played an integral part in making the event a success.
