Participate as a Survivor or Caregiver
Relay For Life events offer an
opportunity to be a part of one of the largest cancer support networks in the
world. If you are a survivor or caregiver, you are invited to join the Relay
For Life movement, where you will be supported by all participants.
If you have a loved one who is unable to join us at the Relay For Life Opening Ceremony, you can still pay tribute to them. A Virtual Survivor is a person who has been diagnosed with cancer, but cannot physically attend a Relay due to distance, time, illness, etc. These are the people in our lives that we CELEBRATE at Relay For Life, whether they can be with us at the event or not.
By creating a poster, photo collage, or t-shirt, you can honor them in the Opening Survivors’ Lap. You will be asked to join the first lap, walking behind the Survivors, carrying or displaying your tribute to your Survivor who could not be at the Relay. You will also receive an official RFL Survivor T-Shirt, bracelet and pin to send or give to your Virtual Survivor after the walk.
