Relay for Life is a 6-24-hour team event to fight cancer. It raises awareness of cancer in the community and raises money to support the programs and services of the American Cancer Society.
Here’s how it works: A team captain gets together some of his or her closest friends, family and coworkers and forms a team. The team members go out and collect contributions prior to the event. Relay for Life is the celebration party at the end of the fundraising.
Come Relay Day: Participants grab their tents and chairs and head to the Relay for Life. It’s like a community camp-out. People pitch their tents on the field, and take turns walking around the track. One person is always on the track representing the team for the 24 hours.
Relay for Life is not just about honoring Survivors; it’s about empowering them to fight back against cancer. The first lap at the Relay is special … it’s the Survivor’s Lap. Cancer survivors are invited to walk the first lap. It’s very emotional and hopeful to see how many people DO survive cancer.
In the evening: there is a Luminaria Ceremony. White bags with sand and a candle line the track. Each one is dedicated IN HONOR OF a cancer survivor, or IN MEMORY OF those who have lost their battle. Luminarias encircle the track and light the way as Relay participants walk through the night.
It’s special: Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature event. It allows us to honor cancer survivors, remember those we’ve lost, educate the community on early detection and prevention of cancer, and raise much-needed funds for our community programs and services.
Why 24 hours? We are asking you to give one day out of your life for those who may not have another. There are similarities between the Relay For Life and what a cancer patient goes through: It may get hot during the day and you may feel like quitting. But you keep walking. It may get windy and cold at night and it may rain. But you press on…knowing that the sun will come up and it will be a new day.
Why Relay? One in three people will be diagnosed with cancer within their lifetime. The money raised at Relay saves lives by funding cutting-edge cancer research, early detection and prevention education, advocacy efforts, and life-affirming patient services. Your involvement makes this all possible.
