The relay is an American Cancer Society-sponsored event that raises money and awareness for cancer across the nation.

Proceeds from the thousands of Relay for Life events help further cancer research and other ACS-sponsored programs. The relay is also a great fundraiser for those who cannot walk or run several miles. Relay for Life only requires that one person from each team be on the track at all times. This allows team members to take breaks. However, team members should be able to walk for 30 minutes at a time.
