Welcome to Relay For Life 2014!

In the fight against cancer, silence is the last thing we need. Relay For Life of Rome is a great place to take action and make noise. The American Cancer Society Relay For Life movement symbolizes hope and our shared goal to end a disease that threatens the lives of so many people we love. If cancer has touched your life, participating in Relay For Life of Rome is a great way to take action and help finish the fight. This is your opportunity to honor cancer survivors, remember those we have lost, and raise funds and awareness to fight back and help end cancer forever.

Sign up today for Relay For Life of Rome

You will be able to start a team, join an existing team, or register to walk the Survivor Lap.

 We're Spreading 'Hope Across America!' (& Canada, too!)

Postcard - Alaska     Postcard - Arizona    Postcard - South Dakota

 This year's event theme is 'Hope Across America' - we're celebrating the uniqueness of each state and how we're all in the same fight together - to beat cancer! Each team is being asked to 'adopt' a different state to use as inspiration for their campsite decorations. We hope you'll also take the opportunity to share some info on the state - for example, are they smoke-free, what is their obesity rate, what is their top cancer, do they have a special crop, etc. Let's celebrate the 50 states (& Canada!) and fight cancer together!

Click this link to view the states and see which have been adopted by which teams!
