Relay For Life is an overnight event that joins communities in the fight against cancer. It is a way to celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones, and fight back against a disease that takes too much from too many.

Teams of friends, families, schools, businesses, and organizations raise money for the American Cancer Society, individually and through fun group fundraisers, and then join together at a local track, taking turns walking overnight. Teams set up campsites and enjoy entertainment, activities, and special ceremonies throughout the night.

Cancer survivors and caregivers are the guests of honor and each Relay For Life kicks off with a special recognition of them, followed by an inspirational luminaria ceremony. Many cancer researchers whose work has been funded by the Society have gotten involved in Relay For Life, too. Did you know that the popular jewelry company Alex & Ani has designed a Relay For Life charm, with 20% of the proceeds supporting the cause?

Join us to see what Relay For Life - the world's largest cancer-fighting movement - is all about. 1 in 100 Americans Relay. Won't you?
