Relay For Life Youth
At the Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life Youth, students can step up, build school spirit and make a real impact - while learning valuable lessons about teamwork and giving back.
Relay For Life is your school's chance to host a fundraising event like no other. When you Relay, you are joining a national movement along with thousands of participants across the country who are committed to changing the future of cancer. This event gives you the opportunity to be a leader is your community, as you raise money for life-saving cancer research and important support services for Canadians affected by this disease.
