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
In honor of those who battle cancer 24 hours a day, team members typically take turns walking the track throughout the day and night. For those not walking, there is constant action to keep everyone busy. From entertainment, food and games to touching ceremonies and stories of inspiration, there is something for everyone at Relay For Life.
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.
Relay For Life began with one man in Tacoma, Washington in 1985 and is now a worldwide movement to end cancer, with over 5,600 events across America that raised more than 400 million dollars in 2011. These funds help the American Cancer Society achieve their mission of eliminating cancer as a major health concern.
Every Relay For Life event we celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer through the Survivor’s Lap and survivor recognition. The strength of survivors inspires others to continue to fight. Relay participants also remember loved ones lost to the disease, and those who have survived and are currently battling cancer with the always moving Luminaria Ceremony.
