What is Relay For Life?

Although every Relay For Life event embraces the uniqueness of the home community, every event includes the same four signature elements: a celebration of cancer survivors, a celebration of caregivers, a luminaria ceremony to honor and remember loved ones, and the opportunity to fight back against cancer.

Celebration of Survivors

We kick off our Relay event by celebrating our local cancer survivors. We encourage you to invite friends and family currently living with cancer or survivors to attend and join in the celebration.
All attendees of the event are asked to line the track during the survivor lap and cheer on our survivors.

Bring noise makers, pom-poms, and anything you bring to a pep rally to cheer those survivors on!

Celebration of Caregivers

After the Survivor Lap, caregivers are invited to join the survivors. A caregiver is a friend or family member who helped a person with cancer, regardless of if they are still with us. It may even be a healthcare worker.
Attendees are again asked to line the track and cheer for our caregivers!

Meaningful Luminaria

We will take time to remember those we have lost to cancer and reflect on the journey of those who have survived.

At most events, after the sun sets, Relay teams help light pre-made luminaria bags that are dedicated in honor, or in memory, of a loved one.

If you would like to make a donation or fundraise with Luminaria – you can do so via Dedicate a Luminaria.

Opportunity to Fight Back

We come together as a community to fight back against cancer. Invite your family and friends to attend the event and support you and your fellow Relayers’ fundraising efforts.

Commit to finding ways to fight back against cancer.

More than just a walk, the American Cancer Society Relay For Life brings together passionate supporters who embody the American Cancer Society’s vision to end cancer as we know it, for everyone. This volunteer-led experience unites communities to celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost to cancer, and raise funds to improve the lives of people with cancer and their families through advocacy, research, and patient support, to ensure everyone has an opportunity to prevent, detect, treat, and survive cancer.

The American Cancer Society could not advance the mission without the passionate support of the global force of Relay For Life. There are now more ways than ever to join Relay For Life and connect with others in your community impacted by cancer and every dollar raised fuels the American Cancer Society’s fight against cancer.
