Mission Statement

The American Cancer Society’s mission is to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer. At the American Cancer Society, we're on a mission to free the world from cancer. Until we do, we'll be funding and conducting research, sharing expert information, supporting patients, and spreading the word about prevention. All so you can live longer -- and better.


Relay For Life is a movement, a community of like-minded survivors, caregivers, volunteers, and participants who believe that the future can be free from cancer.

There are many ways you can get involved and support our Relay mission. Relay volunteers help with registration, logistics, participant support, and other unique opportunities based on the event’s location. Or you can be a Relay For Life participant or team captain and volunteer your time by participating in the event and fundraising. Thanks to its unique volunteer-driven model, Relay For Life is the world’s largest peer-to-peer fundraising event dedicated to saving lives from cancer. We are always in need of passionate volunteers who can unleash their creativity and find new and different ways to support Relay For Life and help fund our cancer-fighting work.

Required Training
  • Relay For Life Event Leadership Team members who help plan the event may need to complete required training and orientation based on their roles.
  • On-site training may be required for day-of-event volunteers.
