Relay Events For Everyone
Because there are so many people who want to be involved in the Relay For Life movement, we offer a little something for everyone. By offering more events, we magnify our reach by rallying more communities to fight back against cancer. Find out more about the variety of Relay For Life events available, and then search to see which ones are offered in your community.
At our community events, teams camp out at a school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Events are overnight and up to 24 hours long, and because cancer never sleeps, each team has at least one participant on the track at all times. Each team participates in fundraising in the months leading up to the event.
Schools have the option of hosting their own activities. Our student Relay events offer specialized fundraising, cancer education, and leadership opportunities for elementary, middle, high school, and college students.
Bark For Life
Celebrate the caregiving qualities of canine companions! Bring your best canine friend and join us for a fun-filled day of walking, demonstrations, and games. A Bark For Life® event can be organized as a revenue enhancer to a community Relay For Life event or as a team fundraiser in which an entire community can participate.
Each community's Relay For Life event is special, but its greatest power lies in the synergy created by all Relay For Life events taking place worldwide. Each year, more than 4 million people in 20 countries take part in the Relay For Life movement the world's largest fight against cancer.
Would you like to lead the team or join the team?
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.
