2015 Marks the 30th Anniversary of Relay For Life!

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is the world's largest and most impactful fundraising event to end cancer. It unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action to finish the fight once and for all. Today, with the support of thousands of volunteers like you, the American Cancer Society is helping save more than 400 lives a day. And we won't stop until we finish the fight against cancer! Please join us!

We are happy to announce our theme for this year's event: Relay Rewind: Relay Like It's 1985! Since this is the 30th Anniversary of Relay For Life, we're celebrating 80's style!

Join Our Event Leadership Team!

The NEW Event Leadership Team reflects a tri-lead structure, focused on three main areas: Bringing the PeopleBuilding the Fun, and Funding the Mission. Positions are also broken into more "bite-sized" roles to fit the needs of today's volunteers and are accompanied by more simplistic descriptions of each role. 

Keep an eye out for more details about Relay informational meetings and opportunities for you to be a part of this unique leadership opportunity.

Register as a Survivor or Caregiver

Relay For Life gives us the opportunity to celebrate those who have had cancer and remember loved ones lost. You are considered a survivor from the moment of diagnosis, even if you are still undergoing treatment. Survivors are the very reason why we Relay. 

Caregivers are those special people who have provided support or care for a cancer patient at any time during their cancer journey. Whether it be a meal, a ride to treatment or emotional support, Caregivers play an incredible role and we invite you to be a part of this life-changing event.
