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

Relay for Life is a fun-filled overnight event designed to celebrate cancer survivorship and raise money for research and programs of the American Cancer Society. Teams of people walk the track to signify that cancer never sleeps. There is a survivor dinner hosted before the event where all survivors and caregivers can come together for support. The survivors then kick-off the event by taking the first lap around the track. The rest of the night includes entertainment, games, food, and a remembrance ceremony called the Luminaria Ceremony.
