Taken from the American Cancer Society:

Relay For Life® is a fun-filled overnight event designed to bring together those who have been touched by cancer in our community. At the event, we celebrate survivorship and raise money to help the American Cancer Society in its mission to save lives, help those who have been touched by cancer, and empower individuals to fight back. During the event, teams of people gather at schools, fairgrounds, or parks and take turns walking or running laps. Each team tries to keep at least one team member on the track at all times.

But, Relay is much more than a walk around a track. It is a time to remember those lost to cancer and celebrate those who have survived. It is a night for people who have shared the same experience to comfort and console one another. During this event, we honor survivors during the Survivors Lap and we remember those we lost to cancer during the Luminaria Ceremony. We also celebrate life, friendship, and a chance to work together toward a cancer-free future.

Most importantly, Relay gives you the power to help in the fight against cancer. By joining together as volunteers and donors, our efforts help the American Cancer Society strive toward a future where cancer doesn’t take the lives of our friends and family.


On May 18-19 my highschool will be participating in the Realy For Life. Throughout the night my community's teams will walk the school's track in honor and rememberance of those whom have lost their lives to the ravages of cancer. I have seen first hand the hundreds of tear filled eyes at the Luminaria Ceremony, and i myself have cried while walking the track reading name after name of those who have fallen to cancer.  But i have not just come here to inform you all of this wonderous event, it is my hope that the generosity of this website will show its colors once again and aid me in raising money for the Relay For Life. So please follow this link and donate to the American Cancer Society so that a cure may be found. www.kintera.org/faf/donorReg/d…
