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!



In honor of 30 years of Relay, founded in 1985 by Dr. Gordy Klatt, our theme this year will be:  

Totally Awesome 80s!

Let's celebrate the 80s in style, and Relay on, Bureau County!
