What is Relay for Life?

Relay For Life is a festival-like fundraising event where team members take turns walking around a track or designated path. Our events are 6 to 12 hours in length, depending on the location. Each team taking part is asked to have at least one member on the track at all times to symbolize the ongoing fight against cancer. On and off track, there is always something to do at Relay For Life. Those taking a break from walking can check out the entertainment and many activities, or relax at their team’s campsite.

Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) is a community based organization whose
mission statement is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer. In light of the COVID- 19 pandemic; and in order to honor our commitment to physical distancing and protect the well bring and safety of people living with cancer, event participants, our donors and volunteers, Relay for Life will head in the direction of a virtual event.


At Relay For Life, no one faces cancer alone. These events bring together teams of family, friends and colleagues to celebrate cancer survivors, remember those we’ve lost and commit to raising funds to fight all types of cancer. Relay For Life is a community of people fighting back against cancer.

Everyone has a reason to relay. Here are some of the personal stories of those who will be at this year’s Relay for Life.
My first experience with cancer was when I was in second grade and my grandfather died from lung cancer. Ever since then, my family members would share “tips” and “superfoods” that helps with cancer prevention. Cancer became a taboo subject in my family. However, my uncle was diagnosed with stage 2 colon cancer this year and now everyone’s lost… #whyirelay , to hopefully find a cure in the near future, and to motivate everyone who’s fighting cancer to be strong.
