2015 Cornelius-Huntersville Relay for Life

Paint Can


Relay for Life is a family-friendly event held in cities all over the country and we have one in our area. While Relay for Life is a race to find a cure for cancer, the event is not an actual race. So, don't be afraid to join a team! We have an ambitious $100,000 goal but we can do it with your help! 

Are you a survivor?

An important part of Relay for Life is honoring those who have survived the fight. One way we do this is at the Survivor Dinner, which will be held on April 27, 2015. Survivors and their caregivers are invited to attend the dinner. RSVP today!
