      Get Involved

      Relay For Life is a celebration of survivorship – an occasion to express hope and our shared goal to end a disease that threatens the lives of so many people we love.

      There are many ways you can get involved:

      Sign Up

      When you walk to end cancer at a Relay event, it’s your opportunity to not only honor cancer survivors and remember loved ones lost, but also to raise awareness about what we can do to stay well from cancer and raise money to help fuel the world’s largest walk to end cancer.

      Donate

      When you donate, you can assign your gift to a specific participant, team, or event. Cancer is an issue that affects us all, and your tax-deductible donation supports the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving mission.

      Sponsorship

      By supporting the American Cancer Society through a Relay For Life event, you are sending the message that you care about the well-being of your community and are committed to saving lives by partnering with the world’s largest fight for more birthdays.

      Volunteer

      Unite with people in your community who have been affected by cancer and use your passion to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.

      Fundraising

      Teams can have a lot of fun organizing activities and events to raise money for the American Cancer Society.
