The Ambassador program offers volunteers a way to promote NSFC and act as a resource in their communities for stomach cancer awareness.
No Stomach For Cancer Ambassadors help NSFC raise awareness for stomach cancer in their communities, and help introduce NSFC and its services to people in their communities.
Ambassadors agree to serve for at least one year, and can renew for additional years.
Working within established guidelines for NSFC, an Ambassador commits to the following for a one-year period:
- Hosting or participating in at least one Awareness event per year in their community. Examples could include: invite community members to your home or community center to present information about stomach cancer; staff a table at a community health fair, workplace wellness fair, church fair; offer to speak at a local event, etc.
- Distribute brochures or other NSFC materials to local clinics, community centers, etc.
- Contact local media outlets regarding Stomach Cancer Awareness Month and/or other newsworthy items
In exchange for a one-year (renewable) commitment, ambassadors receive:
- A No Stomach For Cancer Ambassador polo shirt to be worn at events promoting NSFC
- A packet of awareness materials to hand out (and more as needed) including brochures, wristbands, awareness cards, magnets, etc.
- Talking points about stomach cancer and NSFC
- Recognition on NSFC’s website and in Annual Report as an Ambassador
