Luminarias honor every life touched by cancer. You can dedicate them to a loved one lost, someone currently
battling, or anyone who’s overcome it. When you attend a Relay event, you’ll see the Luminarias
decorated with names and sometimes messages to the people they’re dedicated to.
After dark, Relay participants share an emotional moment when each Luminaria is lit in remembrance of a life
touched by cancer. Together, we take a moment of silence to remember the loved ones they’re dedicated
to. When you make a donation for a Luminaria it helps fund the American Cancer Society’s mission to
help save lives.

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.
