Ed Randall’s Fans For the Cure is
a prostate cancer awareness organization that holds
events at minor league baseball games nationwide. We are holding our Elizabethton
event on Thursday, August 27 at the Twins game.

Our organization (www.fans4thecure.org) holds an annual day at over 170
minor league ballparks. We have a table set up at the ballpark, and
distribute information to fans about prostate cancer. The table is staffed
by a few local volunteers, and fans are “enticed” to the table with a
chance to win a free autographed bat by the Twins.

I am requesting the services of 2-6 volunteers to work the table at the
event. The game starts at 7pm, and we’d ask the volunteers to arrive at
about 5:30pm. The volunteers usually stay at the table through the fifth
inning . We would be looking for a couple of the volunteers to greet the
fans when the gates open, and give out our pamphlets and direct them to our
table to sign up for entry into our data base where we can distribute
further info. The other volunteers would be at the table taking care of the
sign-up process (remember, those signing up will be eligible to win the
autographed bat!).

Our materials have been sent to the Twins in advance, so the volunteers
would pick them up when arriving at the game. There is nothing to bring.
Just show up and at the end of the time slot turn over the materials to the
team representative.


Fans For The Cure is about saving lives, and our hope is that you might be
able to assist us in our mission.

Any volunteers can e-mail or call me directly.
