Global Relay For Life

One World - One Hope!

Since 1996, the American Cancer Society’s signature activity has become a global movement. Global Relay For Life® (GRFL) events are now held in more than 20 countries. This unique activity, designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money for life-saving research and programs, unites and mobilizes community members committed to fighting back cancer.

The Global Relay For Life Program enables cancer leagues around the world to increase their visibility and generate cancer awareness, outreach, and income while building survivorship, volunteerism, and advocacy efforts in their communities.

Through Global Relay For Life, survivors are given the spotlight to show that there is life after diagnosis. These “Global Heroes of Hope” inspire other community members who have been touched by cancer. They are a testament to the progress that has been made in the fight against cancer and are changing the face of survivorship worldwide.
