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.

How Fundraising Makes a Difference
Participants in ACS’ ongoing Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3) are helping investigators track symptoms and identify the immediate impacts of the COVID-19 epidemic, including how COVID-19 affects cancer patients and survivors.
Talking through an issue or concern with someone can bring comfort and clarity. People can access our cancer information and support 24/7 by phone, video chat, or online.
Through our advocacy affiliate, the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), staff and volunteers are working with federal, state, and local governments to advocate for cancer patients and their families.
ACS wants to make sure everyone has the ability to benefit from advances in research, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. All people deserve a fair and just opportunity to prevent, find, treat, and survive cancer.

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.
