More than just a walk, the American Cancer Society Relay For Life brings together passionate supporters who embody the American Cancer Society vision to end cancer as we know it, for everyone. This volunteer-led experience unites communities to celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost to cancer, and raise funds to improve the lives of people with cancer and their families through advocacy, research, and patient support, to ensure everyone has an opportunity to prevent, detect, treat, and survive cancer.
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.
