Student Relays

The American Cancer Society has many ways for students to be involved with the Relay For Life movement. We offer fundraising, cancer education and leadership opportunities for all students elementary through college. In addition to the option for students to participate in their local community Relay For Life event, students and schools have the option to host or participate in their own activities.

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.
