Relay For Life
Relay For Life is a community fundraising event where Canadians across the country join together in the fight against cancer. In 2015, over 330 Relays took place across Canada.
Picture yourself walking a track while hundreds of people – family, friends, co-workers and neighbours – cheer you on. The baton you hold in your hand is a powerful symbol of your personal commitment to make an impact in the fight against cancer. As you complete your lap and pass the baton to a teammate, you feel an overwhelming sense of pride in knowing you’re united with Canadians in communities across the country to create a world where no one fears cancer.
Other ways to get involved
It has been easy to support the Canadian Cancer Society. Each one of us has been personally touched in some manner by cancer.
Volunteers provide comfort and kindness
Thousands of Canadian Cancer Society volunteers work in regional cancer centres, lodges and community hospitals to support people receiving treatment.
