What to Expect at a Relay Event
Why We Fundraise
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.   

No matter why you take part in Relay, however, one thing is clear: with
every step you take, you are helping the American Cancer Society save
lives. With your help, we aren’t just fighting one type of cancer – we’re
fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community.
Each person who shares the Relay experience can take pride in knowing
that they are working to create a world where this disease will no longer
threaten the lives of our loved ones or claim another year of anyone’s life.
Hope Lodge
Getting the best care
sometimes means
cancer patients must
travel away from home.
This can place an extra emotional and financial
burden on patients and caregivers during an
already challenging time. The American Cancer
Society is trying to make this difficult situation
easier for both cancer patients and their families
through Hope Lodge.
Road to Recovery
Every day, cancer patients need rides to treatment. Some may not be able to drive themselves, and family
and friends cannot always help. Our Road To Recovery program provides rides to patients who have no
way to get to their cancer treatment.
Look Good...Feel Better
In a Look Good…Feel Better session, trained volunteer cosmetologists teach women how to cope with
skin changes and hair loss using cosmetics and skin care products donated by the cosmetic industry.
Reach to Recovery
If you have breast cancer, you may want to talk to someone who knows what you’re feeling – someone
who has “been there.” Through our Reach to Recovery program, we can match you with a volunteer who
will talk with you about coping with your breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.
College Scholarships
The American Cancer Society's Cancer Survivor College Scholarship Program is an opportunity exclusively
for students with a history of cancer. Established in 2000, the program is designed to provide young
cancer patients/survivors assistance in pursuing higher education from an accredited school. Talk to your
local office to learn more.

The Relay For Life movement is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraiser
dedicated to helping communities attack cancer. From team members to volunteers,
we all want to remember those we’ve lost, help those affected today, and take action
against cancer. Through funds donated, time given, or awareness raised, our
communities are teaming up to make a difference, whether we’re connecting virtually
or sharing space. When we rally together in the fight against cancer through this fun
and inspirational event, we can accomplish anything.
