Additional Information:

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have abttled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.  At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path.  Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event.  Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events that last for 24 hours. 

Relay For Life is more than just a fundraiser.  It's a life changing experience.  Everyone's reason to Relay is as unique as their own personal story.  At Relay, you can find healing, comfort, and support from others who have faced cancer or who have lost a loved one to the disease.  You have a chance to meet people in the community who are equally as passionate about finding an end to cancer in our lifetime.  You can thank all the people who have done so muhch to support you through your personal cancer experience.  And you can gather together with friends, family, and colleagues to laugh, cry and create lasting memories.
