Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraiser dedicated to helping communities attack cancer.
Funds raised not only help the American Cancer Society create breakthrough research, but also provide free lodging near treatment, a 24/7 live helpline, and free rides to treatment.
1 out of 3 people in the US will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Relay For Life helps by:
- Funding potentially lifesaving cancer research grants totaling over $400 million already
- Fielding well over a million calls and chats from patients and caregivers seeking support
- Providing nearly half a million nights of free lodging near treatment for patients in 2017
Be part of Relay For Life by joining an existing team and raising money, donating, or even volunteering your time on the day of the event.
Relay For Life teams fund raise leading up to the event. On the event day, there’s an Opening
Ceremony, and teammates take turns walking laps to symbolize the ongoing fight against cancer.
The day is full of laughs, games, raffles, music, and food. As darkness falls, we light Luminaria to remember those we’ve lost, and we end the day with a Closing Ceremony to recognize everyone for their hard work.
Join us for at Chesapeake City Park on Friday, May 31st at 5:30PM
