Relay For Life - a day against cancer
The Relay For Life is 24 hours of team relay, activities, entertainment and information that gives hope and support to everyone affected by cancer.

Stafet For Livet is the world's largest fundraising activity in the fight against cancer. In Denmark, there are relays spread across the country, and in Stafet For Livet Vejen we need more volunteers who will locally take on the task of planning content and physical surroundings together. A group of volunteers is in the process of planning the Relay For Life Road on 21-22. August 2021. Do you want to join?

Tasks as a lead for logistics:

Your task will be to work with others to ensure that all the necessary facilities are in place for a good relay and to ensure that safety is in order.

  • Organize and lead meetings in the Logistics Group
  • Participate in steering group meetings with the other rope holders and make sure to communicate regularly so that there is control over what is to be used by tents etc.

The logistics group's task is i.a. to:

  • Arrange everything practical in relation to the place - tents, tables, chairs, access conditions, toilet facilities, water, electricity, fire safety, parking conditions, etc.
  • Make an overview plan of the place: Relay track, stage, info tent, tent pitches, toilets, etc.
