The American Cancer Society would not be successful without one key element: you! Because of our generous donors and volunteers, we’ve been able to help thousands of people across the globe with breakthrough research, crucial patient care programs, and education and prevention initiatives. That’s why it’s so important to get involved in Relay For Life and fundraise — because when you do, you help save lives.

WAYS TO PARTICIPATE
Joining a Relay For Life event is easy. All you have to do is pick your event, sign up, and decide how you’d like to be involved. Here are some ways to get in on the fun:
Want to become a captain of compassion? You’ll make a huge difference by recruiting members, organizing fundraising goals, and cheering on your team the whole time.
There’s no participation trophy, but the reward is much sweeter. You can join an existing team, start your own, or volunteer at the event. Whichever one you choose, we’d love to see you.
Survivors and Caregivers
Survivors and caregivers are the heart of every Relay For Life event. We have activities and events designed specifically for you so you can get to know others in the community. In fact, it’s the largest cancer support network in the world!
Why participate as a survivor or caregiver?
- Meet and network with other survivors and caregivers.
- Serve as inspiration to those newly diagnosed.
- Publicly recognize and thank caregivers for their support and commitment.
- Publicly honor and applaud survivors.
- Acknowledge that cancer is something faced together, not individually.
If you’d like to join the survivor and caregiver activities at the event, but don’t want to join a team, that’s no problem. Once you’ve chosen the event you’d like to participate in, just select the ‘Walk the Survivor Lap’ option.
