Mission Statement

The American Cancer Society (ACS) is a 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, advocacy, education and service.

Description

The Relay For Life is a unique event involving hundreds of participants, in teams of 8 to 15 persons, who pledge to keep one member of each team on the track for the entire 24 hours of Relay as the team members camp out in the infield of Location on date from time. This symbolizes that   There Is No Finish Line Until We Find A Cure. Cancer survivors are honored for their courage and strength by beginning the event with an honorary lap. The individuals are celebrated in various ways from food and t-shirts, to dances and games!
