The Relay For Life movement unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action to finish the fight once and for all. Relay For Life events are community gatherings where teams and individuals gather at a school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Teams participate in fundraising in the months leading up to the event as well as the day of the event.
