This summer, the world will celebrate the incredible efforts that volunteers put forth in the fight against cancer! On August 19 and 20, the Relay For Life Global Summit at the Mall of America will feature a 50,000 star display to honor star performers in the fight against cancer.

Now, with a $10 donation to your local Relay For Life event, YOU can dedicate a star to someone who clearly deserves one. Maybe it's Team Captain who has helped to improve your Relay experience. Maybe you know a Survivor or Caregiver who has inspired you to keep fighting. Perhaps a teacher, a teammate, or a Team Ambassador is deserving of praise.

To purchase a star and recognize your cancer-fighting hero, please complete this offline form and mail it in with your payment to your local American Cancer Society office at 1324 Belmont Street Suite 204 Brockton, MA 02301. Or, you can visit and purchase one online. If you fill out this Google Form in addition to your purchase, your honoree will receive a certificate to recognize his or her work.

Deadline for offline purchases is August 1st and all online purchases is August 15th.

An extra special thank you to the Town of Abington for all their support.

Remember, our event season doesn't close until August 31st, so if you haven't met your team or personal fundraising goal yet for this year, you can continue collecting donations.
