Help Save Lives!
About Relay For Life & The American Cancer Society
Cancer is the second leading cause of death globally(1) Approximately 39.6% of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetimes(2). However, events like Relay For Life have been helping to save lives for decades. If you’re unfamiliar with Relay For Life, it is a team-fundraising event that helps to fund cancer research, provide supportive services to those diagnosed with cancer, while also remembering those loved ones lost, celebrating the lives of those who have survived, and working to help those who are still fighting. Events consist of teams of participants taking turns walking a designated path or track and normally last from six to 24 hours. There is never a time when a team member is not walking the path to signify that cancer never sleeps, and neither do we.
Since 1913, the American Cancer Society has been fighting to put an end to cancer and, partly because of their work, nearly 14.5 million people in the United States alone have survived cancer—a diagnosis that, when the Society was first founded, was almost certainly a death sentence.
A cure is out there! Will you help find it?
