What is Relay For Life?

Although every Relay For Life event embraces the uniqueness of the home community, every event includes the same four signature elements: a celebration of cancer survivors, a celebration of caregivers, a luminaria ceremony to honor and remember loved ones, and the opportunity to fight back against cancer.

The American Cancer Society could not advance the mission without the passionate support of the global force of Relay For Life. There are now more ways than ever to join Relay For Life and connect with others in your community impacted by cancer and every dollar raised fuels the American Cancer Society’s fight against cancer.
