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 an overnight fundraiser where teams from all backgrounds walk around a track to raise funds and awareness for the research and programs of the American Cancer Society.

While the event is only one night, fundraising for Relay For Life is a year-long endeavor. Teams and participants hold fundraisers around the community to join everyone together in the fight to cure cancer.

A Relay For Life event is organized by an event leadership team, consisting entirely of volunteers. The leadership team is responsible for recruiting teams, securing sponsorship, accounting, publicizing Relay, as well as planning the day of event activities.

Your local Relay, Relay For Life of Falls Church-Vienna, will be holding their event on May 30-31, 2015!
