Honor a Loved One with a Luminaria

As the sun sets, luminaria lining the Relay For Life event track light up the night. A hush falls over the crowd that had been overflowing with celebration. Participants, survivors, and caregivers then gather to remember loved ones lost to cancer and to honor those whose fight continues.

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.
Click here for more information on how to participate as a survivor or caregiver.

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. 

Click here to complete a form to register a Virtual Survivor. 

In the fight against cancer, silence is the last thing we need. Your local American Cancer Society Relay For Life event is a great place to take action and make noise. The Relay For Life movement features community and campus events that offer an inspiring opportunity to honor cancer survivors, promote how individuals can reduce their cancer risk, and raise money to help end cancer.

Today, with the support of thousands of volunteers, the American Cancer Society is helping save more than 400 lives a day. And we won’t stop until we Finish the Fight against cancer!
