Awards & Recognition
As a long-standing tradition, it is with pleasure and appreciation that we recognize the efforts and accomplishments of individuals and communities who help fuel the mission of the American Cancer Society through the Relay For Life movement. Recognition is not just "a good thing to do," it is a critical component in how we acknowledge, value, and thank our volunteers for their time and commitment to making a difference. Relay For Life volunteers play a key role in making this cancer's last century.
While no award can adequately recognize all that Relay For Life volunteers achieve in their efforts to eliminate cancer, the Society offers the Relay For Life Nationwide Awards and Recognition Program as a tribute to some of the nation's most outstanding participants.

Would you like to lead the team or join the team?
This isn’t what I wanted.
Cancer has touched all of us in some way. And we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We'll spend the next few weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, on the day of the event, we'll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.
Together, we'll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.
