Relay For Life is a fun-filled overnight event designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money for research and programs of your American Cancer Society. During the event, teams of people gather at schools, fairgrounds, or parks and take turns walking or running laps. Each team tries to keep at least one team member on the track at all times.
Attending the event allows you to see all the lives you've helped. Seeing all of the survivors, fighters, and caregivers of cancer smiling and saying thank you is worth the many hours and that one sleepless night. You thank God for every minute of your life and pray that you are given the opportunity to help another person.
