Relay for Life is a community event where residents get together to honor the life of cancer survivors and remember those lost to cancer. Funds are raised throughout the event to help make a difference in the fight against cancer. Relay teams camp out overnight and take turns walking around a path or designated track at a local fairground or school. The events are held overnight because cancer never sleeps. Each team must maintain one person on the track at all times to continue in the event.
The Relay for Life event has raised more than $400 million. The funds are used by the American Cancer Society to help in groundbreaking research to cure cancer. American Cancer Society programs such as Reach to Recovery, Hope Lodge, Road to Recovery and Look Good Feel Better receive the funds as well. For more information about where the funds go, you can visit www.cancer.org for more information.
People from all over the world take part in this event. During the survivors lap, participants and survivors overcome their battle. During the Luminaria Ceremony, we take the time to remember people who have lost their lives or those who are currently fighting the cancer battle. The Fight Back Ceremony inspires the participants in the Relay for Life event to take action.
