About American Cancer Society Relay For Life®   

Volunteers are committed to fighting cancer in their communities year round, but once a year, they gather at the American Cancer Relay For Life® to celebrate survivors and caregivers, remember loved ones lost and to gain inspiration for the fight. 

Each of the more than 4,800 Relays nationwide is a fun-filled, overnight event that mobilizes communities to celebrate survivors (anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer), remember loved ones and raise money for the fight against cancer. Teams of eight to 15 members gather with tents and sleeping bags with the goal of keeping on person on the track at all times. Relay For Life® brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools, churches and people from all walks of life. Teams seek sponsorship prior to the Relay, all with the goal of eliminating cancer. To find out about local Relay for Life events, visit
