At Relay For Life events, communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much.
The event begins with having the survivors take a celebratory lap while the crowd is cheering them on. Next, the caregivers take their turn and are recognized for all they do to support their loved ones. Once the event is in full swing, teammates take turns walking the track or path to symbolize the ongoing fight against cancer.
Every one of us has been touched by cancer in some way. Friends, relatives, caregivers, and survivors – we all use our special passion to help the American Cancer Society save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer. And there’s no better time than now to start!
