What is the Road To Recovery program?

One of the biggest roadblocks to cancer treatment can be transportation. That's why the American Cancer Society Road To Recovery program provides patients with free rides to treatment. One of the key ways these rides are provided is through volunteers. The program is offered to cancer patients who have no means of transportation or who are unable to drive themselves to treatment. Trained VOLUNTEER drivers donate their time to help patients get to the treatment they need. Rides are provided primarily Monday through Friday.

How do I become a Road To Recovery volunteer?

A simple screening process helps to ensure that the right volunteers are recruited for the program.

  • Volunteers are required to complete the necessary trainings to help support them in their role.
  • Volunteers must provide the necessary profile information, which will help with coordinating ride requests.
  • Interested volunteers can contact our web page or call 1-800-227-2345 .

Mission Statement

For 100 years, the American Cancer Society (ACS) has worked relentlessly to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Together with millions of our supporters worldwide, we help people stay well, help people get well, find cures, and fight back against cancer.

Relay For Life Celebrate.Remember.Fight Back.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to Celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, Remember loved ones lost, and Fight Backagainst the disease.

Each year, more than 4 million people in over 20 countries take part in this global phenomenon and raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer.


At Relay For Life events, communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much. The funds you raise truly make a difference in the fight against cancer - just ask one of the nearly 14 million cancer survivors who will celebrate another birthday this year!

Relay For Life teams camp out overnight and take turns walking or running around a track or path at a local high school, park, or fairground. Events are up to 24 hours long, and because cancer never sleeps, each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times.
