What is Relay for Life?
Have fun. Raise funds. Fight cancer.
The Relay For Life movement is American Cancer Society’s signature fundraiser dedicated to helping communities attack cancer. From team members to volunteers, we all want to remember those we’ve lost, help those affected today, and give us a home team advantage against cancer. Through funds donated, time given, or awareness raised, our communities are teaming up to make a difference. When we rally together in the fight against cancer through this fun and inspirational event, we can accomplish anything.
How fundraising impacts your community
1 out of 3 people in the US will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.
Help even the odds in the fight against cancer. The funds you raise through Relay For Life will not only honor survivors and remember loved ones, but also help give cancer patients and their families the resources they need, like free rides to chemo, free places to stay near hospitals, and a live 24/7 helpline for answers and support.
How you can help
Join a Relay Event
Join an existing team and raise money to help fund everything from breakthrough cancer research to free rides for treatment.
If you can’t participate in a Relay event, you can still help save lives by making a donation. Every dollar fuels the American Cancer Society’s fight against cancer.
The days and weeks leading up to an event are filled with fun activities and fundraising with your team. You can even download our FUNdraising App to give you a major edge in the fight.
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.
