Relay For Life is a unique fund-raising event that allows participants from all walks of life, including patients, medical support staff, local businesses, friends, families, corporations, civic organizations, churches and community volunteers to join together to fight cancer. The funds that are raised truly make a difference in the fight against cancer. The American Cancer Society puts these donations to work, investing in groundbreaking research in every type of cancer and providing free information and services to cancer patients and their caregivers.
