About Relay For Life:

Relay For Life is a truly unique experience which unites communities to finish the fight against cancer. Volunteer support is crucial to the event and will help the American Cancer Society create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.

Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society's largest signature activity that offers communities an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer. Individuals and teams walk with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the pathway/track at all times. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but most teams also hold creative fundraisers at the event. Relay For Life brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools, faith-based groups . . . people from all walks of life - all aimed at celebrating the lives of those who have had cancer, remembering those lost, and fighting back against the disease.
