Mission Statement

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life represents the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated.

Description

Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society's signature activity. It offers everyone in a community an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer. Teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Relays are an overnight event, up to 24 hours in length. Teams of people from all walks of life have fun while raising much-needed funds to fight cancer and raise awareness of cancer prevention and treatment. Relay For Life is a life-changing event that brings together more than 3.5 million people to: • Celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer. The strength of survivors inspires others to continue to fight. • Remember loved ones lost to the disease. At Relay, people who have walked alongside people battling cancer can grieve and find healing. • Fight Back. We Relay because we have been touched by cancer and desperately want to put an end to the disease.

Would you recommend Aliso Viejo Relay for Life?

by Anna D. (August 18, 2009)
The event was very fun and relaxing. It didn't feel like work when I was volunteering at all. They had many donation methods available and each one was fun for whoever was donating. It was also very informative. There was a survivor walk which was heartwarming to watch as well :)
