There are lots of ways you can get involved: you can volunteer at a Relay for Life event in your community or you can make a donation. Perhaps the best way you can get involved is to attend an event. Get family members, friends or coworkers together to create a team and help the American Cancer Society celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones we’ve lost and help fight for a cure.

Relay for Life events are a great way to give back to communities, give people a place to celebrate and remember loved ones, and provides a fun and festive place to be surrounded by great people.
