Mission Statement

We save lives and create more birthdays, by helping you stay well, helping you get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back.

Description

Each American Cancer Society Relay For Life event gives everyone an opportunity to fight cancer and help save more lives. Teams made up of family members, friends, and/or coworkers camp out at a local school, park, or fairground and take turns walking around a track or path. Because cancer never sleeps, each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the overnight event.

Relay For Life is the signature fundraising event for the American Cancer Society. At the event, you will have the opportunity to celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost to the disease, and learn more about how to fight back against cancer. While you're raising much-needed funds, you'll also be raising awareness of the importance of cancer prevention, early detection, treatment, and patient support.
