Relay For Life is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society where you can celebrate cancer survivors and remember those no longer here. The American Cancer Society is the only organization that integrates advocacy, research, and patient support to measurably improve the lives of cancer patients and their families. You will become an advocate to share the work of the American Cancer Society to personally impact the fight against cancer.

Ways to Fundraise
Fundraise directly within your own network with a Facebook Fundraiser. You can easily connect yours through the mobile FUNdraising App or through your Relay event dashboard.

Turn an activity you’re passionate about into a fundraiser and manage it entirely on your own. Anything goes!
Once you raise a minimum of $100, you join our Hope Club, a group of dedicated participants who have achieved this fundraising goal, and you will receive our special Hope Club shirt to wear proudly at your event.
Hope Club is a huge accomplishment, but you don't have to stop here! You can keep fundraising to earn ACS Rewards points that can be redeemed for cool Relay swag. And every dollar you raise funds more research breakthroughs, more 24/7 helpline calls, and more support for those who need it most.
Grand Club and All Star
Raise $1,000 to join our Grand Club or raise $2,500 for entry into our exclusive All Star Club. Both fundraising clubs come with exclusive member benefits, special gifts, and bragging rights.

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.
