The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is the world’s largest fundraising event and most impactful by bringing communities around the world together for a common cause. The event symbolizes a celebration of life for those who have battled cancer, remembering loved ones lost, and taking action to finish the fight. Each Relay for Life event includes an opening ceremony, a lap for survivors, a lap for caregivers, a luminaria ceremony and a closing ceremony.
