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 the American Cancer Society's signature activity. It is a unique event that offers communities an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer. Relays are 18 to 24 hours in length and are overnight. Teams of 10 to 15 people camp out at a local high school, college, park, or fairground and take turns walking, jogging, or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event.

Since Relay For Life is a community gathering rather than an athletic event, anyone and everyone can participate. Businesses, clubs, families, friends, hospitals, churches, schools, and service organizations form teams. These teams share a common purpose- their support of the American cancer Society's mission.
