Mission Statement

One in three people will be diagnosed with cancer within their lifetime. The money raised at Relay saves lives by funding cutting-edge cancer research, early detection and prevention education, advocacy efforts, and patient services. Your involvement makes this all possible.

Relay allows all individuals an opportunity to celebrate the lives of those who have survived cancer and to remember those that have passed away from this disease. For the newly diagnosed, Relay offers a chance to meet others who have claimed victory over cancer and has often been described as a "healing Experience." For the caregivers who give their time, love, and support to their friends and family who face cancer it provides hope and understanding. Come join your local survivor celebration today at Relay and participate in this life-changing event!

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life represents the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated.

Description

Relay For Live is the American Cancer Society's signature activity. It offers everyone in a community an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer. Teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground 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 during the event. Relays are overnight events, up to 24 hours in length.

Teams of people from all walks of life have fun while raising much-needed funds to fight cancer, and raise awareness of cancer prevention and treatment. No matter who you are, there's a place for you at Relay. To participate, form a team, or dedicate a luminaria at your local American Cancer Society Relay For Life, please call 1-800-ACS-235 or visit www.cancer.org.
