“My mom walked in the first Relay For Life, and then continued to participate in Relay, as much as she could, all the way to the end. She passed away in 2007. I probably did Relay For Life for 20 years with my mom.” – Christine, Relay For Life participant.

Get Involved

Thanks to the support of our team captains, participants, staff, and volunteers, we’ve helped the American Cancer Society fund lifesaving research, crucial patient services, and education and prevention initiatives that have helped millions of people – and we have no intention of slowing down. That’s why we need people like you to join us. Any way you choose to get involved will help us save lives from cancer – but we can’t do this without you.



Team Captain

Want to become a captain of compassion? You’ll make a huge difference by recruiting members, organizing fundraising goals, and supporting your team.

Rally with your community by fundraising to fight cancer. You can join an existing team, or start your own team. Whichever you choose, you’ll be part of something big.

Survivor and Caregivers

Survivors and caregivers are the heart of every Relay event. Connect with other survivors and caregivers, inspire someone newly diagnosed, lend an ear to someone with a similar situation, and be part of a community where cancer is faced together, not individually.

The National Partner Program builds relationships with national and regional companies. It is an excellent way for businesses to participate while boosting employee morale and team-building skills.


There are plenty of ways to join the fight as a volunteer. If you’d like to donate your time to support cancer patients and programs, get started by exploring our volunteer opportunities.


Relay Gear

Fundraisers earn points for every dollar raised to redeem for Relay products and swag through Relay Rewards. You can also purchase Relay gear through the ACS Event Shop.

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.
