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.
The Relay Recess program engages elementary schools in the Relay For Life movement. The program brings information about cancer education, physical activity, fundraising and community service into the classroom. Students then have fun with entertainment and activities that reinforce what they learned.
