Do you have questions about Relay? Here are some Frequently Asked Questions:

1. How do I start a team?
When you click "Sign Up" on the home page, it will bring you to the "Register for an Event" page.  On the right hand side under "New Participants", click on start a team.  You also have the option to join an existing team. 

2. How do I switch teams?
In order to switch teams, please email our Online Chair, Jessica Smock at usdrelay@gmail, with your name and the team to which you like to switch.

3. What if I don't have a team to join?
You can sign up for Relay for Life as an individual.  Under the "New Participants" column on the "Register for an Event" page, the bottom option says "Walk as an individual".  But we do encourage our participants to sign up with a team if you are interested.  If you are looking to join a team but do not know which team to join, email our online chair, Jessica Smock, and she will help pair you up with a team. Otherwise, you are always welcome to join the "Colleges Against Cancer" team. 

4. What does a Team Captain do?
A Team Captain is the leader of their team. You can be as involved as you want, but they generally attend Team Captain meetings, recruit students for their team, and help set up their campsite the night of Relay. In addition, Team Captains get extra purple "swag" for their hard work. 

5. Can you list me as the captain of my team?
In order to be listed as a team captain after registering for Relay for Life, please email our Online Chair, Jessica Smock at, with your name and which team for which you would like to be a captain.

6. What is the difference between joining a team and being on a committee?
A committee member works throughout the year on a specific aspect of Relay such as Team Development, Survivorship, Advocacy, etc.  Committee members are selected in the fall of each year.  Joining a team simply requires registering for $10 dollars and can be done at any time during the year. (There will also be special promotions throughout the year that cut the cost). Team members can actively participate in Relay throughout the year by attending our events and fundraising money through the Relay website.

If you are interested in becoming a committee member, please contact Jessica Smock at for more information

7. How do I send fundraising emails through the website?
Go to "My Relay", which listed as one of the top tabs. In the "My Fundraising Tools" you can send fundraising emails by clicking on "Ask for Donations".

8. When/where is Relay?
Relay is a 24-hour event on March 21st to 22nd from 6PM to 6PM at Mission Field here on campus. 

9. What do you do at Relay?
Relay For Life is a time for all Toreros to come together to celebrate, remember, and fight back against cancer. Teams set up campsites around Mission Field with fundraisers and particpants are always walking around our track. We will have entertainment, food, and prizes the whole night and particpants can walk around to the different fundraisers throughtout the night.

10. Do I have to run at Relay?
No, you do not have to run around the track during the night of Relay unless you would like to. You can walk either by yourself or with friends around the track. We ask teams that they have at least one team member walking around the track at any time during the night of Relay.
