The American Cancer Society Relay For Life® movement is the world’s largest fundraising event to end cancer, uniting more than four million people in 24 countries (including the US) to take action against the disease. Symbolizing the battle waged around the clock by cancer patients, Relay events can last up to 24 hours. Teams camp out around a track or path and take turns walking as celebrations, games, music, and other activities keep things lively.
