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

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life movement is the world’s largest and most impactful fundraising event to end cancer. It unites communities across the globe including 17 in the greater New Orleans area. Team members take turns walking or running around a track or path for up to 10 hours and raise money and awareness to help the American Cancer Society save lives. Relay For Life events keep cancer prevention top of mind among participants by sharing cancer prevention information and hosting fun games around the topic. Dollars raised support groundbreaking cancer research, education and prevention efforts, and free information and programs for cancer patients who need them.
