Mission Statement

The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service.


Description

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life movement is the world’s largest fundraising event to end cancer, uniting communities across the globe to finish the fight. Dollars raised by more than four million Relay participants in more than 20 countries help the American Cancer Society save lives by supporting education and prevention efforts, funding groundbreaking cancer research, and providing free information and services for people with cancer who need them.

At a Relay For Life event, teams camp out at local schools, parks or fairgrounds and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times, while entertainment, music and fun activities keep things lively. Symbolizing the battle waged around the clock by those facing cancer, the overnight event lasts 24 hrs. Teams raise money prior to the event, and celebrate their fundraising efforts while honoring survivors and remembering those lost to cancer with ceremonies during the event.
