Relay For Life of San Francisco

Charles Schwab - Light of Hope

Charles Schwab is Joining the Fight Against Cancer!

The Charles Schwab Light of Hope Luminaria program is designed to honor, remember, and support loved ones impacted by cancer. A luminaria ceremony occurs at every Relay For Life event in the world. As the sun sets, personalized luminaria bags are lit up by candlelight along the walkers' track to symbolize hope and remembrance.

It's simple to participate! Just click on the “Dedicate a Luminaria” button, select “Traditional White Bag”, and then add your personal message for your loved one. We encourage you to increase your total donation to $25 or more since a minimum $25 donation qualifies for Charles Schwab’s matching gift program. You can do this by either increasing the quantity of luminarias or by choosing an additional donation before checkout.

American Cancer Society volunteers will create a custom luminaria bag with your personal message on it. The campaign will run until June 9, 2017. All luminaria bags will be displayed at the San Francisco Relay For Life event on June 10, 2017 and we welcome each of you to attend the event to see your personal luminaria bag lit up in honor of your loved one.

Thank you for supporting the Charles Schwab Light of Hope Luminaria program and for helping create a world with less cancer and more birthdays!
