Meet the NCLT: Corey
Meet Corey! He is from Stillwater, Oklahoma studying Management at Oklahoma State University. He is a second year member of the National Campus Leadership Team and is the co-chair of Relay For Life.
Where do you Relay and Why?
I Relay because I believe in the mission of the American Cancer Society. I Relay for anyone who has ever had an encounter with cancer. I Relay for a CURE.
What is your favorite Relay memory?
I had the opportunity to speak with a cancer survivor at my local Relay For Life event at Oklahoma State University and he shared with me all of the incredible things the American Cancer Society has done for him. That was the first time I saw the “big picture” of Relay For Life, and the American Cancer Society, and realized that the funds I am raising now are truly making an impact in the lives of others.
Explain your role as Relay For Life Co-Chair on the NCLT.
As the Relay For Life co-chair I help to support all campus Relay For Life events nationwide. I, along with my co-chair, develop and execute all national strategies, initiatives, and challenges to support fundraising and growth across all campus Relay For Life events. I also serve as a student representative to the Nationwide Relay For Life Leadership Team, giving updates on Colleges Against Cancer and campus Relay For Life and provide feedback from a campus perspective on all nationwide initiatives.
