Senior certified pharmacy technician, Walgreens
Rael Szulc’s commitment and passion to ending the fight against cancer is personal. She lost her father, her aunt and her grandmother to the disease and she is consistently inspired by their fight.
Szulc started volunteering for Relay For Life Kenosha in 2008. She served on the events volunteer committee and as a member before being named the event team captain in 2010 and event chair in 2012.
She is responsible for overseeing all aspects of planning, recruiting volunteers and teams, and soliciting new event sponsors.
Her contributions have helped Relay for Life Kenosha become the largest event of its kind in Wisconsin.
According to Kelsey Chapman, community manager for the American Cancer Society, Szulc is a “strong, collaborative leader.”
More than 1,000 community members attended Relay For Life Kenosha in 2015, raising a projected $280,000 for the cause, and over the four years Szulc has chaired Relay for Life Kenosha, the event has raised more than $1 million for the fight against cancer.
In addition to her responsibilities as event chair, Szulc is also team captain for the Walgreens Team that has raised nearly $84,000 for the cause since 2010. Along with her team, Szulc leads and organizes creative fundraising efforts in order to advance the cause.
