Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s Signature Event It is a unique community fund-raising event that allows participants from all walks of life – including patients, medical support staff, corporations, civic organizations, churches & community volunteers – to participate in the fight against cancer.

Team Participation Because Relay For Life is a community gathering rather than an athletic event, anyone and everyone can participate. It offers everyone in the community a chance to participate in the fight against cancer. Teams of people camp out and take turns walking around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Relays are overnight events, usually ranging from 6 to 24 hours in length. Friends, relatives, local businesses, hospitals, schools, churches, & other organizations form teams to raise funds to fight cancer!
