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 community event in which people from all over Chesapeake come together to fundraise throughout the year. At the event we celebrate our survivors by having them take the first lap and honoring them with a reception. We remember through our luminaria ceremony during which candles are lit in honor and memory of all those we have lost to cancer. We pledge to fight back to make sure that, soon, no one will have to hear the words "you have cancer" again.
