Rachel Roberson

Sammamish, Washington

Rachel Roberson, 17, of Sammamish, Wash., a senior at Eastlake High School, has worked her way from participant to event lead for her local Relay for Life over the past four years, and now leads 20 other high school students in organizing an event that brings together more than 400 people a year to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Inspired to volunteer by her mother’s experience with breast cancer, Rachel manages logistics from team recruitment to timeline management to ensure that the event runs smoothly.
